I’ve read “Goodbye Tsugumi” by Yoshimoto before, and I found the relationships a tad unbelievable, the characters a little forced.

I’ve always been a firm believer that friends are the family you choose I even have a matching tattoo with my soul sister Charlie to prove it, which you can see here. Overall, I really did enjoy the exploration of the theme of family, and what can actually constitute as one. Throughout the book, the reader will surely understand why. For such a slim volume, this book took me forever to read.

Best of World Literature Moonlight Shadow also follows a female narrator, This book consists of a novella called Kitchen and a short story called Moonlight Shadow.

This talent has struck me deeply and I could picture Saipan in my mind.

Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto (3 star ratings)

All her books are about loss, grief, pain, death. The word Amrita comes the old Sanskrit word yoshimoot, and it is a divine nectar, something the gods indulged.


Based on this evidence, I’d be more interested in reading further short stories by Yoshimoto, rather than another novel.

Destinul lui Mikage e la fel de incert ca miscarea celor alaturi de care isi duce zilele, in viata ei irump dezvaluiri spectaculoase si se iau revanse transante asupra anilor trecuti. I had hoped that this wouldn’t be the case with this story, and I was surprised to find that I was enjoying this read tremendously.

Things that didn’t work for me Kitchen is not a plot driven novel. View all 6 comments. I loved the usage of Kitchen as a metaphor and letting it play a character in the story.

Hitoshi’s brother who lost his girlfriend in the same accident dresses in her favorite costume as a cope up mechanism. It’s not part of Kitchen though, it’s a different story so you didn’t miss anything important regarding that. Quer salvar o resumo deste livro em PDF? La Yoshimoto tocca temi importanti come la morte e la solitudine con uno stile leggero e fresco, che si legge con piacere. Refresh and try again. She just ended it, guys.

To summarize the novel: In time, Urara tells her what she is and what she is at the bridge for: Although a romantic relationship seems to always be in the background for them- subtle at times, other times seeming imminent- nothing conclusive is ever decided.

It is said that we choose our cravings for certain foods based more on a memory that they were present in, over the taste alone. This is not a simplistic book, however librl it is. All in all, I enjoyed reading this one, but it’s also not a book I’d really go around foisting on others. Kitchen 3 stars is about losing a loved one and finding solace with something and someone. The title refers to Mikage’s fascination with the kitchen, which she claims as her favourite room; she later starts training to kitchem a chef, and food takes on a symbolic quality throughout the story.

Two stories, “Kitchen” and “Moonlight Shadow,” told through the eyes of a pair of contemporary young japanese women, deal with the themes of mothers, kitcgen, transsexuality, kitchens, and tragedy. I didn’t care about them because this new story was just sprung on me right after reading an ending that was so hasty it gave me fucking whiplash, and honestly There were places where I thought the author had interesting things to say and that she was thoughtful, but I couldn’t help but wish I was reading this one in its native language.

Banana Yoshimoto writes in the vein of another famous Japanese writer. Satsuki lost her boy friend Hitsohi to an unforeseen road accident. Both address the sorrow people contend with after the loss of a loved one, as well as loneliness.
