Starting Point 1979 - 1996 by Hayao Miyazaki

I found a copy of this and had a look over some of the articles when I was in Forbidden Planet. Seems an interesting enough read; mainly as Miyazaki comes across as a crochety, single-minded arsehole. His piece on Osamu Tezuka seems particularly cutting although it certainly provides a different idea than the usual "God of Manga" one that gets bandied about as soon Tezuka is mentioned.

The translation's by Frederick L. Schodt too which is good news as his writings on manga and Japan in general are usually worth reading.
