Nocturna Ediciones presents The Great Journey of Shion Miura.
Majime, a shy young man with few social skills but with a great passion for words, is chosen as the new head of the dictionaries department of the Genbu Books publishing house, as the previous one retires. He leaves to his substitute the charge of an ambitious project: the creation of the new dictionary The great voyage. And, it turns out to be the right person.
Throughout the following years, the small editorial team experiences bittersweet moments, friendships, rivalries, crushes and constant love for books as it navigates through the sea of words, whose meaning evolves with the passage of time and social changes.
The great journey is a song to language, a beautiful novel that also serves as a dictionary of life and that in Japan has reaped an immense success: it has sold more than a million copies, has won the prize of the booksellers and has adapted both to the cinema and to an animation series.
