When was it I realized that, on this truly dark and solitary path we all walk, the only way we can light is our own? Although I was raised with love, I was always lonely.

Someday, without fail, everyone will disappear, scattered into the blackness of time. I've always lived with that knowledge rooted into my being...


A few of things to start: This is not a novel; it's a novella and a novelette with interlocking themes. (I rather like the arrangement and I wish more publishers or authors would consider it.) I had no real notion of what it is, and of course books don't come with content warnings, so the violent death in the middle of the first story was a bit of a shock. (Rather unfortunately, a 'bury your queers' kind of shock.) Finally, the stories were written in 1987 or so, and the transgender issues are tackled about like you'd expect them to be in 1987. (That is to say, with a lot of misgendering of the trans character and no granting of any reality to the transition by the other characters. I don't feel that that is how the author necessarily felt.) None of these were deal breakers for me, but I know they may be for others.

Now, as to actual review. For the first two thirds of the first story, I was sure it was going to be a five star, knock it out of the park read. But then the first story settled into really a rather pedestrian ending, and then the second story was honestly pretty much a mess. (Yes I am aware it received a prestigious award. No I don't understand. No I don't care to.) I'm very glad I read this, for the glowing Eriko and the lovely asides on death and living if nothing else. And I will be trying a few more samplings from Ms. Yoshimoto before I make up my mind. Maybe the greatness will be more apparent to me in another story. Hopefully one without a love triangle. Or a fridging. ( )

i told my friend that i've picked up this book to read. she said she's familiar with it and has actually read it five times already. now i understand why.

its a slice-of-life story (actually, 3 novella's rolled into 1), of people living their daily lives while struggling with immense grief, lost, and loneliness. its a very quiet book, no dramatics, no hysterics, but it packs a wallop. i can definitely see myself re-reading this again. ( )

At times overly optimistic, at times sad and touching. Loved the writing style. Want to go out and get everything shes ever written! ( )

this was the first book i managed to finish in nearly five years so it feel very special to me. a sweet, easy read.
  rusala | Feb 23, 2021 |
I finally Burgoined this (read it in 2006) because I read my friend Mamie's bleat of dissatisfaction with it. I really don't like the book at all.

I was exactly 2.5* impressed with it because transsexuals in Japanese (or US) literature are not common. As a value proposition, I encourage you to read representative sample quotes to see if your tolerance for glutinous prose is high enough to endure this. In general, I think it will give the greatest pleasure for specialist audiences. ( )

For English-language readers, the appeal of "Kitchen" lies in its portrayal of the lives of young Japanese.

Banana Yoshimoto won immediate fame in Japan with the publication of this pair of novellas about two bold and guileless women grappling with emotional loss.

Yoshimoto's oriental concision is sometimes idiosyncratic and haiku-like ..., but it's a quality of poignant, dignified resilience that makes this little work worthwhile...
