    I find Banana Yoshimoto s style so distinctive, full of feelings and sensations expressed with touching openness, so unassuming and informal Under this limpid surface, as under the millpond skin of fairytale, meanings proliferate like living fishes, flickering in and out of view The story is gifted to the reader with humble generosity I have this for you, the giver says, and what you ll use it for isn t up to me.There are some moments when corroborations give the little narratives what feels I find Banana Yoshimoto s style so distinctive, full of feelings and sensations expressed with touching openness, so unassuming and informal Under this limpid surface, as under the millpond skin of fairytale, meanings proliferate like living fishes, flickering in and out of view The story is gifted to the reader with humble generosity I have this for you, the giver says, and what you ll use it for isn t up to me.There are some moments when corroborations give the little narratives what feels to me like an overly neat coherence, those times when Yoshimoto reminds me, unfortunately, of Milan Kundera Yet even when I feel this way, as when Fumi touches the handle of the forbidden door and feels its terrible energy, the impression is diffused by the incidental accidental heartbreaking quality of the detail, which brings to my mind probably inappropriately Roland Barthes idea of the filmic Why does the stuffy little room where the dead meet the living have worn red sofas Is this room, with its tired, heavy familiarity, recognisably a product of a distinctively Japanese imagination The title story novella in particular doesn t lack ambiguity Terako s descent into permanent sleepiness seems to parallel both the troubles of her friend Shiori and the comatose wife of her boyfriend, but the links between them are loose like the co incidences of real life that we read according to our various standpoints, transformed by the infusion of Yoshimoto s feel for symmetry and symbiosis, her making whole of the world The resolution worked with difficulty and help by Terako seems wrought out of a creative fusion of folklore and modern lifestyles Spiritual places and people are neverremote than the other side of a shadow here, and though they are sometimes scary, contact with them is associate with Yoshimoto s theme of returning to health, perhaps in the way that Giorgio de Chirico described the world as convalescent the day he went out recovering from illness and had a vision he painted so many times afterwards image error It s this feel for connections that I love in Banana s writing It extends from structures to interactions, so sweetly simple, open and direct in a way people in my own culture never seem to be, and into relationships, where people seem to take deep, honest pleasure in each other, in shared moments however trivial I read to learn.All three stories have female narrators, and reflect positively on relationships between women In that, and in the warm, uncluttered relationships between brothers and sisters, girlfriends and boyfriends, they are a relief, fresh air They extend an invitation to feel differently, through the senses and through the heart however wounded, to feel simply and attend to the blissful comfort of soft sand under your bare toes or a sweet memory drifting into a dream, and then to take than receptiveness to pleasure into all your relationships.It s true I think that Banana Yoshimoto s narrator is always the same person, for all her interiority and however much her names, background, circumstances and impulses vary, her voice doesn t One reviewer calls it the voice of a generation, of Tokyo youth This class strikes me as privileged and self absorbed, but I can t help but admire the avidity and passion they invest in such activities as waking from sleep or planning a date, I can t help but be smitten by their mutualism, their joy in each other The insulated, private experience Yoshimoto so fluidly communicates resonates in me a certain nostalgia for my fairly unhappy teens It reminds me that sometimes just holding it together, just getting through the day, is enough of a victory.This nostalgia reminds us that we need our age mates Here is a video that makes me feel it to the point of tears

    3.5 out of 5AFTER reading Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto cutest name ever I was really looking forward to readingby her I didn t enjoy this book quite as much but it was still fun to read She writes of contemporary life but also dips into magical realism The book follows three different women who are bewitched in some way into a spiritual sleep one finds herself sleepwalking at night, one finds her sleep haunted by the ghost of a woman whom she was once pitted against in a love triangle 3.5 out of 5AFTER reading Kitchen by Banana Yoshimoto cutest name ever I was really looking forward to readingby her I didn t enjoy this book quite as much but it was still fun to read She writes of contemporary life but also dips into magical realism The book follows three different women who are bewitched in some way into a spiritual sleep one finds herself sleepwalking at night, one finds her sleep haunted by the ghost of a woman whom she was once pitted against in a love triangle and the third in a relationship with a man whose wife is in a coma finds herself suddenly unable to stay awake Each of the three stories were charming in their own way They had a magical quality about them The young women in each story were interesting and likeable as protagonists The writing was the strongest point of the book for me, as it was with Banana s other work She writes about contemporary life in a clear and concise way that conjures up vivid images I found myself getting lost in descriptions of mundane things doing laundry, getting dinner, going for walks The internal monologues of the characters were wonderful as well They pondered their situation as well as the people and things around them with a realistic clarity that was refreshing Sometimes book characters can feel quite fake but I really liked all of the characters in this book.Can say with confidence that I ll readof her work in the future because I think she is clever with her words and writes fun stories Definitely recommend this for people looking to get into Japanese fiction

    I don t really know what to say about Asleep It was my first Banana Yoshimoto book and while I didn t dislike it, I didn t necesarily find anything in particular to like about it.It was weird in that way that Japanese literature is usually weird, and usually I m okay with that Asleep consists of three short stories or maybe novellas and none of them really have any ending to them Normally, I m okay with the ambiguous ending that Japanese authors like so much, but having three stories back I don t really know what to say about Asleep It was my first Banana Yoshimoto book and while I didn t dislike it, I didn t necesarily find anything in particular to like about it.It was weird in that way that Japanese literature is usually weird, and usually I m okay with that Asleep consists of three short stories or maybe novellas and none of them really have any ending to them Normally, I m okay with the ambiguous ending that Japanese authors like so much, but having three stories back to back in the same book with little to no conclusions got on my nerves, I guess.However, I would still say that if you don t mind ambiguous endings and have a thing for Asian literature, then go for it

    La prima Banana cada vez que est gustando m s La sensaci n que provoca con sus relatos es conmovedora Me sent en medio de un limbo al leer el primer cuento, precisamente el que le da nombre al libro Tambi n me fascina a veces la idea de no despertar jam s, de ir pudri ndome y desaparecer en la eternidad Tal vez est pose da por el sue o Igual que Shiori estaba pose da por su trabajo Me da miedo pensarlo.

    Sue o profundo el mejor de los tres cuentos En estas tres historias los personajes est n de una forma u otra alienados no s encontrar una palabra mejor La primera chica no deja de dormir, la segunda vaga por las calles, la tercera se emborracha Han terminado con esa forma de enfrentarse a s mismas y a su realidad, aunque esto acaba antes de que sea demasiado tarde para ellas Unos personajes que parecen muy de nuestros d as.
