two elegant stories In Kitchen Mikage Sakurai had just The Trouble with Valentines lost her grandmother theast 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 ive 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 ead busy One Night...Twin consequences (The Monticello Baby Miracles 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 Yuichi cope with hisoss Their relationship continues to center around food and Yoshimoto paints a vivid picture of their One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic life with her description of food and colors as well as Mikage s dreams that determine whichife path that she should take Although both Mikage and Yuichi appear to have bleak existences their story ends with the reader feeling hopeful that they have finally turned the corner These dreams segue to Yoshimoto s second story Moonlight Shadow Satsuki is only twenty years old when her boyfriend of four years Hitoshi passes away in a tragic accident Unable to cope she turns to jogging in order to push away sad thoughts Hitoshi s brother Hiirage who

leading Japanese novelist for the past thirty years Her first two stories contrast the pain of death for theiving with their hope for a brighter future Using uscious imagery of food and dreams Yoshimoto creates vivid scenes in which the iving should be happy to be alive These two stories compliment each other perfectly and rate 4 bright stars People aren t overcome by situations or outside forces defeat invades from withinI didn t ike 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 teenstwenties possibly bad translation and that although the atmosphere is contemporary it was actually written and set nearly 30 years agoI was expecting yrical Wife in Exchange language and uirky insights into Japanese attitudes to death and LGBT 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 doLanguage Teens and TranslationThe weaknesses here made me sad Both stories are narrated by a different young woman Theanguage 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 The Eternal Ice (Magic: The Gathering: Ice Age Cycle, love up bereaved Japanese YAs really speak or spoke 30 years ago or it may be the translation but the result is the sameAfter a particularly egregious section of stilted psychobabble one character says What kind of talk is that Soundsike it was translated from English I guess the author is aware of how clunky it is OddIt s amazing how good this is I saidIsn t it said HiirajiYes it s delicious So delicious it makes me grateful I m alive I saidAnother Why do I Night And Day love everything that has to do with kitchens so much a kitchen represents some distantonging engraved on my soul Does anyone think Tennessee Takedown / Ravens Hollow like that And it doesn t answer the uestion anywayMetaphors must be hard to translate but this one is so mixed up I grudgingly admire it The two of us alone were flowing down that river ofight suspended in the cosmic darkness and were approaching a critical junctureMaybe YAs would relate to the characters better than I did I have no idea but I d be reluctant to recommend it to them because of the next problemTransgender is not TransvestiteThe weaknesses here made me cross Anyone concerned with LGBT issues especially trans ones may feel the urge to throw this book at the wall One has to remember it s a different culture a generation ago but the trouble is it doesn t feel The Cowboy Takes a Bride (The Bridal Bid like a historical novelOne young man takes to wearing his dead girlfriend s sailor suit school uniform He finds that comforting and no one would think it odd for a girl to wear a boyfriend s jumper a female friend is mortified to be seen with him but other girls find it attractive because they assume it means he understands women Not exactly enlightened views but plausible perhaps However they re not challenged which tacitly condones themWorse is the trans character She s muchoved and sympathetically portrayed but the terminology is muddled and descriptions would raise eyebrows and hackles nowadays Early on she is described as having had everything done from her face to her whatever but she is often referred to as really being a man or a transvestite Then it turns out that it was only when her wife died that she realised I didn t Michaels Discovery (The Devaneys like being a man It became clear that the best thing to do was to adopt a sort of muddled cheerfulness So I became a woman Really Justike that To be cheerfully muddledFinding Solace after BereavementThe sudden death of Shotgun Wedding (Silhouette Yours Truly, loved ones is a unifying aspect of both stories They all find awkward support from each other and one finds solace in kitchens and food another in jogging and the river that had divided them been their meeting place and was ultimately where they were separated for everI felt that I was the only person alive and moving in a world brought to a stop Houses always feelike that after someone has diedIf I had Life Changing Smiles lost a parent partner or child maybe I d have been engaged with this book but I suspect my experience would be so different as to be barely comparable I m grateful that I m not in the position to compareStill this helpfully explains thatosing a partner is even worse than osing a dog or a bird So I ve earned something DepthThere were glimpses of something deeper When overtly self analytical I don t think they worked but some were genuinely poignant and thought provokingMikage was an orphan raised by her grandmother I was always aware that my family consisted of only one other person The space that cannot be filled no matter how cheerfully a child and an old person ive togeth.

Capable of creating such exuisite surrealistic imagery as the Japanese writers Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto is no exception to this cherished convention Revolving around the theme of dealing with oss Kitchen focuses on two young women as protagonists and their perceptions of Copper Lake Secrets life and death It tells us about how recurring personal tragedies shape and reshape our views onife and death the kind of catharsis we wish for and the mechanisms we often end up resorting to in order to keep our personal grief from spilling over into the realm of our everyday realityKitchen is definitely not the most ingeniously narrated tale ever Rather it suffers from the monotony of brief simple sentences that may not sit well with some readers who Brooklyn's Song love elouence But this simplistic mode of narration helps it stay true to its original intention that of recounting the story of ordinary people doing ordinary things yet coming to unexpectedly profound realizations about the great uandary ofife Oh Men Are Like Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti Devotional Study Guide let s face it Iove everything Banana Yoshimoto s ever written But that said she s not for everyone she s a minimalist storyteller at Plain Jane The Hotshot 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 urbanife in Japan full of uirky postmodern characters right at the beginning of an age where the Web Family of Her Dreams let everyone on the planet understand that If youiked the movie Amelie you l ove the sparse haunting story of a hurt woman being told here who slowly Girls Night Out learns to trust the world again through the relative warmth of urban kitchensike I said the finale can be he One of the many things I Bound To Ransom (Bound Series Book 2) 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 if a person hasn t ever experienced true despair she grows old never knowing how to evaluate where she is inife 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 Into the Wild (The McGraws, lives into something magical and other worldlyI thoroughly agree with her and that magical uality transforms what could have been a rather banal book into a great oneThe book is divided into two stories both concerning young Japanese womenKitchenMikage Sakurai hasost her dearly beloved grandmother whom she had been Orbital Velocity (Stony Man, living with and she feelsost 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 Cowboy Swagger (Sons of Troy Ledger, live in but hesitates So when a casual acuaintance 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 theiving room and finally the kitchen She was a particular Navy Wife (Navy lover of kitchens The place Iike best in this world is the kitchen No matter where it is no matter what kind if it s the kitchen if it s a place where they make food it s fine with me Ideally it should be well broken in Lots of tea towels dry and immaculate White tile catching the ight ting tingI truly empathized with Mikage from the beginning of this story to the end A tale that on the surface appeared to be simple and even trite at times but which soon uncovered a multi faceted kaleidoscope of human emotions which I had never seen expressed in this way beforeI was the sword in the scabbard firmly attached at Mikage s side I was her friend her alter ego and champion in her uest to re find herself in fact her soul I would protect her at all costSuch interesting characters are to be found in this rather philosophical work individuals in fact who I continued to think about after I finished the bookDuring the time that Mikage spends with Eriko and her son Yuichi the atter who appeared to be a uiet unassuming person was slowly transformed into a soul mate of Mikage which rather stunned her She felt he knew her very soul When you re travelling every night the air is clear and crisp the mind serene In any case if nobody was waiting for me anywhere yes this serene Saving All My Lovin life would be the thing But I m not free I realized I ve been touched by Yuichi s soul How much easier it would be to stay away foreverEriko in particular fascinated me She was a transvestite originally Yuichi s father then upon the death of his wife from cancer and thanks to plastic surgery became his mother She was also the owner of a gay bar Eriko was such a vibrant individual colourful and generous both emotionally and physically She brought back purpose into Mikage sife but then tragedy struck again Truly great people emit a Profile for Seduction (Silhouette Romantic Suspense light that warms the hearts of those around them When thatight has been put out a heavy shadow of despair descends Perhaps Eriko s was only a minor kind of greatness but her One Good Cowboy light was sorely missedThe moon andight are also important themes that flow throughout this storyIn addition there are innumerable turns of phrase that are unforgettable but I particularly A Part Of Me liked Their faces shoneike buddhas when they smiled and The dirigible traversed the sky Shielding the Suspect like a pale moonbeam its tinyights blinking on and offWhen I finished this tale I thought of A Vampires Christmas Carol love won and thenost tragedy pain and suffering that I had just encountered but then beauty hope and optimism are also there What a marvellous mix Moonlight Shadow Wherever he went Hitoshi always had a Rafaels Suitable Bride little bell with him attached to the case he kept his bus pass in Even though it was just a trinket something I gave him before we were inove it was destined to remain at his side until the Not For Sale last This story is also about a young woman called Satsuki who hasost her Daddys Little Cowgirl loved one Hitoshi but it has of a metaphysical feel to it Yes she has this same dreadful sense ofoss as the earlier story Hitoshi had a brother called Hiiragi who had This is What I Want lost his girlfriend Yumiko at the same time as Hitoshi had been killedSatsuki often goes to the bridge where she used to meet Hitoshi and one day she meets a young woman called Urara And due to this meeting Satsuki and even Hiiragi have these metaphysical experiences This story is all rather dreamike and so different to Kitchen but still excellent in its own rightWhen I Building a Perfect Match (Chatam House, looked at this title I kept on thinking about the music of Mike Oldfield s Moonlight Shadow In the preface the author mentions that she wished to dedicate this song to Mr Jiro Yoshikawa who had introduced this music to her the inspiration for this storyTwo exuisite stories and highly highly recommended. Amheid van heteven in een grote moderne Japanse stad Het is net als Moonlight Shadow een elegant verhaal waarvan de schijnbare eenvoud in feite de ist is van de verteller back cover.
