Fiction. Literature. HTML:The acclaimed debut of Japan's "master storyteller" (Chicago Tribune).

With the publication of Kitchen, the dazzling English-language debut that is still her best-loved book, the literary world realized that Banana Yoshimoto was a young writer of enduring talent whose work has quickly earned a place among the best of contemporary Japanese literature. Kitchen is an enchantingly original book that juxtaposes two tales about mothers, love, tragedy, and the power of the kitchen and home in the lives of a pair of free-spirited young women in contemporary Japan. Mikage, the heroine, is an orphan raised by her grandmother, who has passed away. Grieving, Mikage is taken in by her friend Yoichi and his mother (who is really his cross-dressing father) Eriko. As the three of them form an improvised family that soon weathers its own tragic losses, Yoshimoto spins a lovely, evocative tale with the kitchen and the comforts of home at its heart.

In a whimsical style that recalls the early Marguerite Duras, Kitchen and its companion story, Moonlight Shadow, are elegant tales whose seeming simplicity is the ruse of a very special writer whose voice echoes in the mind and the soul.

Oh, what a delight! There is magic in every sentence. I really love the way Japanese authors (and artists of every kind) find beauty in everyday things. There is so much heartbreak in the pages of Kitchen, yet this is the kind of book that warms your heart. ( )

I ended this book and just said "What?" out loud. The book suddenly switches with no warning into the format of a romance story except with all of the bits which might explain their connection and why they care about each other cut out.

Somehow despite the book being first person I never really developed much of an idea about the main character, except that she's in grief, sort of. The romance interest I have absolutely no clue. He likes her cooking? Even she admits she doesn't really understand him at all.

The most developed character is Eriko, a trans woman who runs a gay club. She insists on taking the main character (Mikage) in at the start of the novel when Mikage's grandmother dies for some vague reason. She mostly gets she pronouns but thankfully the author semi-regularly inserts reminders she's a man so you don't get confused. It's weird cause otherwise it feels like a decent portrayal for 1988 but it's like the author couldn't just leave it be. It's frustrating. ( )

Two short but powerful novellas whose lines are worth savoring slowly. Both are about coming to terms with grief through the power of kindness and love. Miyage and Yuichi are dealing with their respective losses. It is only when they channeled their grief into care and love for each other that the world became a bearable place to live in. ( )

Kitchen consists of a novella and a short story. The novella follows a young woman, Mikage, whose grandmother and last living relative has died. She knows she needs to move to a smaller and less expensive apartment, but grief makes it hard to get anything done. Enter Yuichi, a young man who was friends with her grandmother, who invites her to come live with his mother and him as they have plenty of space. What Mikage is especially drawn to is their well-appointed kitchen, and for awhile they form a new family.

In retrospect I realize that fate was a ladder on which, at the time, I could not afford to miss a single rung. To skip out on even one scene would have meant never making it to the top, although it would have been by far the easier choice. What motivated me was probably that little light still left in my half-dead heart, glittering in the darkness. Yet without it, perhaps, I might have slept better.

The short story, Moonlight Shadow, concerns another young woman. After her lover's death, Satsuki is lost in grief, until an encounter with a stranger encourages her to believe that she will enjoy life again.

Both stories concern characters dealing with grief and sudden death, but are both hopeful and even whimsical in tone. This book manages to be charming without being saccharine. Yoshimoto's characters are well-drawn and the stories have an impact despite their brevity. ( )

There is so much heart in this book. So many emotions. ( )

For English-language readers, the appeal of "Kitchen" lies in its portrayal of the lives of young Japanese.
tilføjet af stephmo | RedigerNew York Times, Elizabeth Hanson (Jan 17, 1993)
 
Banana Yoshimoto won immediate fame in Japan with the publication of this pair of novellas about two bold and guileless women grappling with emotional loss.
 
Yoshimoto's oriental concision is sometimes idiosyncratic and haiku-like ..., but it's a quality of poignant, dignified resilience that makes this little work worthwhile...
