    There s something about Japanese writers They have the unparalleled ability of transforming an extremely ordinary scene from our everyday mundane lives into something magical and other worldly A man walking along a river bank on a misty April morning may appear to our senses as an ethereal being, barely human, on the path to deliverance and self discovery There s something deeply melancholic yet powerfully meaningful about the beautiful vignettes they beget Few other writers are capable of creating such exquisite surrealistic imagery as the Japanese writers Kitchen, by Banana Yoshimoto, is no exception to this cherished convention Revolving around the theme of dealing with loss, Kitchen focuses on two young women as protagonists and their perceptions of life and death It tells us about how recurring personal tragedies shape and reshape our v...

    Kitchen and its accompanying story Moonlight Shadow comprise the first novella by award winning Japanese novelist Banana Yoshimoto Both stories are told through the eyes of young women grieving following the death of a loved one, and deal with how that death plays a profound role in relationships going forward Told in straight forward prose leaving nothing to chance, Yoshimoto tells two elegant stories In Kitchen, Mikage Sakurai had just lost her grandmother, the last person in her family to pass away Alone in the world and unable to cope with her university schedule, Mikage falls into a bleak existence One day, a classmate named Yuichi Tanabe invites her to live with him and his mother in their apartment because Mikage s grandmother had a profound effect on him Although reluctant to accept the kindness, Mikage agrees and the Tanabe s couch becomes her new home Mikage becomes rooted in the kitchen It becomes her compass by which she compares all homes that she has ever entered Upon arriving, she takes over cooking for Yuichi and his mother Eriko, a transvestite who runs an all night club Both lead busy lives and emit positive energy, encouraging Mikage to engage in her newfound passion of cooking The three make up a new family unit until Mikage can recover from all the death around her Months pass and Eriko is murdered at her club The tables turn and Mikage helps Yuich...

    Can cooking help you cope with the despondency you feel from loss I m not talking about wolfing down garlic mashed potatoes from a pan I m talking about a multi course gourmet meal that you are willing to toss out if it s not perfect and start all over again That s the theme of Kitchen Our main character is a twentyish woman who lost her father at an early age and then her mother She went to live with grandparents but her grandfather died, and then her grandmother, and now she has no living relatives She turns to her kitchen But she is also invited to live with the family of a young man she has known since childhood Now here s a modern family just two people, the young man and his mother But did I tell you his father is his mother Or, to phrase that correctly, his mother is his father It s a transgender situation The two young people are drawn to each other but then he is hit by loss They grapple with tryi...

    Oh, let s face it I love everything Banana Yoshimoto s ever written But that said, she s not for everyone she s a minimalist storyteller, at least in my opinion, able to turn the emotional state of the right reader with the flick of just one beautiful perfect phrase, but only if you re ready to catch that beautiful perfect phrase and appreciate it for what it is Give up on this review yet Then you shouldn t be reading Yoshimoto Actually consisting of two novellas, Kitchen named after the better of the two is the story of 1990s urban life in Japan, full of quirky postmodern characters right at the beginning of an age where the Web let everyone on the planet understand that If you liked the movie Amelie, you ll love the sparse, haunting story of a h...

    This is a book on healing, a lovely look at the hurting human heart and its captivating reflection Convalescence has never been so beautiful One has to admit that the theme of loss in literature has been one of the most exploited and has been done so masterfully by the best But never have I encountered one on recovery where it has been handled as exquisitely Everyone we love is dying Still, to cease living is unacceptable When you lose someone, a void is created You seek to fill that hole inside you Stability is what you desire, because your once solid world of certainties has crumbled And so we latch onto the most basic things and habits Constant things we know that will never leave and never fail us a kitchen, cooking, the road, running, clothing, videos, pictures, songs, books You lean on that, get strength from the habit till you are strong enough to gamble on uncertain things Hurt is ice It melts it turns to water that evaporates into thin air But ice takes time to melt, tear by tear There is nothing you can do but wait, and so you do Until the time when the coldness is gone and you sigh and inhale the air that was once ...

    People aren t overcome by situations or outside forces defeat invades from within I didn t like this book It comprises a novella Kitchen and short story Moonlight Shadow , but I m not sure how much is the book s fault, and how much can be attributed to being set in an unfamiliar culture Japanese teens twenties , possibly bad translation, and that although the atmosphere is contemporary, it was actually written and set nearly 30 years ago.I was expecting lyrical language, and quirky insights into Japanese attitudes to death and LGBTQ issues I was sadly disappointed, but kept going because it was short and because I gave up part way through my previous book something I rarely do.Language Teens and TranslationThe weaknesses here made me sad Both stories are narrated by a different young woman The language is often simple, but rather than the spare beauty I vaguely associate with Japanese and Chinese writing, it s mostly just banal and awkward That may be how angst ridden, love up, bereaved Japanese YAs really speak or spoke, 30 years ago or it may be the translation, but the result is the same.After a particularly egregious section of stilted psychobabble, one character says, What kind of talk is that ...

    One of the many things I love about goodreads is that a person is able to see what other friends think about a novel before committing oneself to reading it I would have never read KITCHEN had I not seen that Mariel, Oriana, and Jason Pettus, three of my friends, all thought highly of this slim book But, even with the high ratings of these three friends , I still had to find out information about Banana Yoshimoto, the author So I went to Wikipedia obviously, where else would I go and read about her accomplishments and many literary awards in her home country of Japan It seemed there was a phase lovingly referred to as Bananamania both in the US and in Japan Then, just as I had decided that perhaps this book was not worth moving to the top of my TBR pile, I saw that Yoshimoto had outspokenly said that she aims to win the Nobel Prize in literature I loved this bravado Most critics don t see this as happening, saying she is a lightweight Well, I put what the critics had to say aside and began reading this novel.And I have to say I loved the use of a kitchen as a metaphor for life and life s daily interac...

    if a person hasn t ever experienced true despair, she grows old never knowing how to evaluate where she is in life never understanding what joy really is I m grateful for it. Samadrita in her excellent review began with There s something about Japanese writers They have the unparalleled ability of transforming an extremely ordinary scene from our everyday mundane lives into something magical and other worldly.I thoroughly agree with her and that magical quality transforms what could have been a rather banal book into a great one.The book is divided into two stories both concerning young Japanese women.KitchenMikage Sakurai has lost her dearly beloved grandmother whom she had been living with, and she feels lost, alone and vulnerable She s now an orphan as there are no other relatives The tide has gone out and she doesn t know when or whether it will return She knows she has to find a new apartment to live in but hesitates So when a casual acquaintance, Yuichi Tanabe, who used to work part time in her grandmother s favourite flower shop, invites her to stay with him and his mother, Eriko, she agrees, especially when she sees the enormous sofa, which would be her bed, in the living room and finally the kitchen She was a particular lover of kitchens The place I like best in this world is the ...

    4.5 5A couple of days ago, I watched a film called Millenium Actress, a Japanese anime film centered around the life of a once wildly popular Japanese film star I loved it for its lovely story as well as its wonderful animation, but most of all for its peculiar disregard of many of the rules of film that I hadn t realized I unconsciously followed until they were subverted This sort of bending and breaking of my own sensibilities into something I had never considered something that would work is rampant in this book here, on a much heartbreaking level As both the film and the book are Japanese, there could be a correlation that other partakers of that particular cultural entertainment would be familiar with, but I shy away from labeling it as something inherent on a sociocultural level Instead, I will describe it on my own terms, and see what happens from there Kitchen is subsumed in grief Each part of the story is centered around the death of one or individuals, who through their passing have prompted the narrator and other characters to go forth on their own personal journeys of coming to grips with what has been left to them What is missing, an absence that at first bewildered me but one that I now see as beneficial, is the pomp and circumstance that usually accompanies such...
