"Packed with interesting details about the filmmaker's life, interests, and inspirations."-Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"A refreshing, intimate, highly original look at Miyazaki Hayao's oeuvre, including early anime features, mainstream hits and the many-volumed manga, Nausicaa. Miyazaki is placed firmly on the world stage, including both local roots and global impact."-Rachael Hutchinson, University of Delaware

"Although famous and regarded as the most talented animator of all times and countries, Hayao Miyazaki's personal life has never received the attention that it deserves. Now, however, Susan Napier has written the first thorough and enlightening biography of this amazing artist, who revolutionized the world of animation. Napier's work reveals how a man born at the start of World War II and mass destruction arose and dedicated his life and work with great integrity to peace and extraordinary creation. This is a startling biography about a startling artist!"-Jack Zipes, University of Minnesota

"An insightful, fascinating, and revealing study of Miyazaki and his worlds by one of the world's foremost experts in Japanese animated films, Miyazakiworld is a true achievement."-Karen Thornber, Harvard University
"Providing expert guidance to the radically inventive mysteries of Hayao Miyazaki's films, Susan Napier shows exactly how Japan's master of animation taps into the wonders of the natural world yet also faces down our demons, exploring trauma, crisis, and the willful destruction of our made world. Like his literary and cinematic forebears, Miyazaki creates a form of wonderlore that reveals the power of art to animate, not just his characters and landscapes, but also his audiences."-Maria Tatar, author of The Annotated Brothers Grimm
"In Miyazakiworld, Susan Napier demonstrates her gift for narrative and passion for enchantment in exploring the spacetime between the fantasy worlds of Hayao Miyazaki's creation and the grittier worlds that created him."-Jennifer Robertson, author of Robo Sapiens Japanicus
