When Banana Yoshimoto's Kitchen was first published in Japan in 1987, "Bananamania" seized the country. Kitchen won two of Japan's most prestigious literary prizes and sold millions of copies. It is a startlingly original yet charming book that juxtaposes two tales about mothers, transsexuality, kitchens, love, tragedy, and a pair of free-spirited young women. (Grove Press)

Review:

"Ms. Yoshimoto's writing is lucid, earnest and disarming, as emotionally observant as Jane Smiley's, as fluently readable as Anne Tyler's. ...[It] seizes hold of the reader's sympathy and refuses to let go."
