Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kitchen juxtaposes two tales about mothers, transsexuality, bereavement, kitchens, love and tragedy in contemporary Japan. It is a startlingly original first work by Japan's brightest young literary star and is now a cult film.

When 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 Yoshimoto was hailed as a young writer of great talent and great passion whose work has quickly earned a place among the best of modern literature, and has been described as "the voice of young Japan" by the Independent on Sunday

About the Author

Banana Yoshimoto writes intelligently and sweetly about contemporary Japanese life. Instead of focusing on the hollowness of the rat race, she talks about the unexpected corners of life that add meaning, like finding pleasure in spending time with a friend and his transsexual mother, or reconnecting with a ghost. Yoshimoto brings sensitivity and compassion to her subjects and the subcultures they inhabit.
