キッチン Kitchin

Characters キッチン Kitchin Banana Yoshimoto ☆ 6 Summary Characters ↠ キッチン Kitchin 106 Shimoto was hailed as a young writer of great talent and great passion whose work has uickly earned a place among the best of modern literature and has been described as 'the voice of young Japan' by the Independent on Sunday. 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 novelAnd I have to say I loved the use of a kitchen as a metaphor for life and life s daily interactions When you stop to think about it there are a lot of events that happen in a kitchen over the course of the day I had never stopped to give this much thought In graduate school I did read some essays by a sociologist and anthropologist team that ventured across Europe studying bathrooms as a way to see into a country s culture But if the kitchen metaphor was only a stand a lone point of the story the book would have floundered So Yoshimoto supplies whatever actions happen in a kitchen home apartment restaurant even the simple act of eating as communion with direct language that is sparse beautiful and laden with underlying messages You see the real uestion of this novel is What does love mean to a person when it becomes absent in one s life This is an incredibly difficult uestion to answer for both the characters in the story as well as for the reader In the story Mikage loses her grandmother and is then invited to stay with Eriko a transvestite and her his son Yuichi For the most part this piecemeal family goes about its daily interactions as any normal family would That is until tragedy strikes I won t spoil what happens but let s just say Mikage loses again along with some other characters It is at this point that the reader takes on a new role one of participant There are several choices that the reader must make 1 stop reading 2 allow the events to play out and continue reading or 3 believe in the tragedy and get lost in the story I chose number 3 And even though I have no basis of understanding to compare to these characters I felt their pain the confusion the moments of helplessness that teeter precariously on the edge of hopelessness Perhaps it would be easy to label this as just a sentimental novel by an overrated novelist but that may be missing the point This is a powerful novel if allowed to be read as a powerful novel It tries to give answers to difficult uestions Sometimes the novel succeeds Sometimes it fails even dare I say becomes hokey But all of that can be whitewashed over by the simple notion that this novel achieves what other great novels achieve the ability to be whatever the reader wants it to beI cannot say that Banana Yoshimoto will be a contender for the Nobel Prize but I can say that she delivers a strong argument for being one of the great writers currently writing todayVERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

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 trying to help each other maybe love each other or maybe just pity each other and try to stop each other from jumping over the edge This very short novel has a short story appended at the end Moonlight Shadow This story also about loss and it could be the same woman takes us into magical realism Maybe they do come back at least to tell you they re okI found the two stories very moving and fascinating to read Translated from the Japanese Photo Model of a Japanese kitchen ca 1880 from peabodyharvardedu

Characters キッチン Kitchin Banana Yoshimoto ☆ 6 Summary Characters ↠ キッチン Kitchin 106 Kitchen was first published in Japan in 1987 it won two of Japan's most prestigious literary prizes climbed its way to the top of the bestseller lists then remained there for over a year and sold millions of copies Banana Yo. People aren t overcome by situations or outside 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 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 sameAfter a particularly egregious section of stilted psychobabble one character says What kind of talk is that Sounds like 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 love everything that has to do with kitchens so much a kitchen represents some distant longing engraved on my soul Does anyone think 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 of light 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 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 much loved 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 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 Just like that To be cheerfully muddledFinding Solace after BereavementThe sudden death of 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 feel like that after someone has diedIf I had 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 that losing a partner is even worse than losing a dog or a bird So I ve learned 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 live together the deathly silence that panting in the corner of the room pushes its way in like a shudder The punctuation is a little odd thoughReality Magical Realism DreamsBoth stories have a dash of this In the first it s a dream that might be a premonition in the second there s an ethereal character who maybe shows another character a little gap in timeuote Far off in the pale sky thin clouds gently flowed suspended It was the kind of frozen morning in which mood shadows seem to be pasted on the sky She was someone whose face told you nothing The little girl whose face epitomized grandchild Her power was the brilliance of her charm which condemned her to an ice cold loneliness The sound of raindrops began to fall in the transparent stillness of the evening Traditional housewives had been taught probably by caring parents not to exceed the boundaries of their happiness On the deserted bridge with the city misted over by the blue haze of dawn my eyes absently followed the white embankment that continued on to who knows where I rested enveloped by the sound of the current I want to continue living with the awareness that I will die Without that I am not alive Hmmm
