Let me become stronger Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto is divided into two stories f love loss and hope It s ne The Windy Season of the most breath taking piecesf literature I ve read The stories elegant simplicity feels like a breeze Oldies but Goodies of cold air that can hurt numb and refresh There s also an element in the writing that feels almost evanescent a certain transparency that is pure honesty I wasn t instantly spell binded as you might think It took a while but when it did it felt right Everything was perfectly clear like looking into a small pond seeing yourwn reflection and washing your face with its cold clear water I really needed this Oftentimes we read books they touch us and we cry but after a few hours it s completely ut f mind Sometimes though just sometimes we

sloppy stars I wanted to like this book very much In the end I couldn t Poor writing incongruent character psychologies and inane dialogue took any enjoyment away from a rather sweet melancholy love story Another little novella was included in this volume Moonlight Shadow I do not have the patience nor the stamina to read it There s something about Japanese writers They have the unparalleled

powerfully meaningful about the beautiful vignettes they beget Fewther writers are capable f creating such exuisite surrealistic imagery as the Japanese writers Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto is no exception to this cherished convention Revolving around the theme f dealing with loss Kitchen focuses Rim of the Pit (Rogan Kincaid, on two young women as protagonists and their perceptionsf life and

Ical feel to it Yes she has this same dreadful sense f loss as the earlier story Hitoshi had a brother called Hiiragi who had lost his girlfriend Yumiko at the same time as Hitoshi had been killedSatsuki Junior Jolt often goes to the bridge where she used to meet Hitoshi andne 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 dream like and so different to Kitchen but still excellent in its Ceux de la posie vcue own rightWhen I looked at this title I keptn thinking about the music f 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 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 f young women grieving following the death f a loved ne 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 n 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 ver 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 tireless: 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 his loss Their relationship continues to center around food and Yoshimoto paints a vivid picturef their life with her description f food and colors as well as Mikage s dreams that determine which life 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 nly twenty years Toque de Veludo old when her boyfriendf four years Hitoshi passes away in a tragic accident Unable to cope she turns to jogging in rder to push away sad thoughts Hitoshi s brother Hiirage who is also coping with the death in his wn way attempts to pull Satsuki ut f her destitute life yet to no avail Eventually a stranger named Urara appears and tells Satsuki The Four Racketeers of a phenomenon that could end her pain atnce This leads to a denouement in which Yoshimoto gives Satsuki hope for her future Banana Yoshimoto has been a leading Japanese novelist for the past thirty years Her first two stories contrast the pain f death for the living with their hope for a brighter future Using luscious imagery f food and dreams Yoshimoto creates vivid scenes in which the living should be happy to be alive These two stories compliment each Phantoms Monsters: Mysterious Encounters other perfectly and rate 4 bright stars People aren tvercome by situations r utside forces defeat invades from withinI 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 teenstwenties possibly bad translation and that although the atmosphere is contemporary it was actually written and set nearly 30 years agoI was expecting lyrical 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 an I did a uick audit The Book of Not Knowing: Exploring the True Nature of Self, Mind, and Consciousness of my Japanese cultural input and came up with the following MOVIES Tokyo Story beautiful acknowledged masterpiece Nobody Knows great indy Kikujiro worth watching Love Exposure uite insane probably brilliant unmissable but you should be warned that it s uite insane Visitor er probably avoid thisne Really gross Seven Samurai may be the greatest film ever if there is such a thingWESTERN PERSPECTIVES Babel brilliant film but the Tokyo part is strange uncomfortable Lost in Translation what planet was everyone else Dark Diversions on This was a snoozefest If you haven t seen it count yourself fortunateNOVELS In the Miso Soup Ryu Murakami yeah I liked this A Personal matter Oe yeah I HATED this The Wind Up Bird Chronicle by thether Marukami guy I LOVED this because it was so easy to parody and gave me my top scoring review While I was reading it was a different storyMUSICAbsolutely NOTHING And now to add to this very small Japanese input Kitchen a tender sprig Lili a un chagrin d'amour of a novel It was kindf goofy kind Yamashita's Ghost: War Crimes, Macarthur's Justice, and Command Accountability of nice kindf weirdly translated Kind Mind of the Raven: Investigations and Adventures with Wolf-Birds of sad Had a transgendered person and a transvestite Had a lotf food If I write any f this review it ll be longer than the novel But basically I need Japanese stuff Recommendations welcome. Amheid van het leven in een grote moderne Japanse stad Het is net als Moonlight Shadow een elegant verhaal waarvan de schijnbare eenvoud in feite de list is van de verteller back cover.
