With the publication of Kitchen , the dazzling English-language debut that is still her best-loved book, the literary world realized that Yoshimoto was a young writer of enduring talent and great passion whose work has quickly earned a place among the best of contemporary Japanese literature. Grieving, Mikaga is taken in by her friend Yoichi and his mother who is really his cross-dressing father Eriko. As the three of them form an improvised family that soon weathers its own tragic losses, Yoshimoto spins a lovely, evocative tale with the kitchen and the comforts of home at its heart. The sensuality is subtle, masked, and extraordinarily powerful. The language is deceptively simple.
If so, it is a slow-roller, but is it credible to you?

If Yuichi is revealed as a prince, is Mikage a Supergirl as she scales the wall of his inn , to her peril, in order to deliver his warm katsudon? How does Yoshimoto craft this elegant, eerie tale? What early hints does she drop that we are on the edge of a paranormal experience?
Starting with the title, what are other suggestions of a shadow world, one in which the fevered Satsuki, grieving, wastes away into a wraith herself? What else makes her susceptible to crossing the edges of her conscious mind? Do you remember revisiting the scene of the fatal accident? Other examples of the supernatural?
How does Satsuki try to combat the vortex of grief and loss she is in? Do her energy and determination prefigure resilience for her? She expresses her fear: However, tellingly, she tucks with gusto into her bowl of tempura with rice.
Can Urara be rationally explained? What are the weird details about this character?
Kitchen | Grove Atlantic
How does she first appear? The telephone number? What else? Describe the river and the bridge, symbolic to the young lovers, even in life. How does the author tighten the suspense toward the end? How do the hypnotic roaring current and the small tinkling bell work together? How has Urara lured Satsuki to the bridge?
It is pre-dawn. In Japan, folk tales like the Weaver Festival Phenomenon still exercise a powerful hold on the imagination where gods and spirits inhabit rocks and trees and rivers. How is the story resolved? Do you feel comfort or closure for Satsuki? Is she resigned to the flow of time? Is it a farewell to her grief and her childhood, as well as Hitoshi?

Grieving, Mikage is taken in by her friend Yoichi and his mother who is really his cross-dressing father Eriko. As the three of them form an improvised family that soon weathers its own tragic losses, Yoshimoto spins a lovely, evocative tale with the kitchen and the comforts of home at its heart.
In a whimsical style that recalls the early Marguerite Duras, Kitchen and its companion story, Moonlight Shadow , are elegant tales whose seeming simplicity is the ruse of a very special writer whose voice echoes in the mind and the soul.
