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.

Den som tipsade om Banana Yoshimotos bcker hr p Boktipset skrev att den som gillar Murakami frmodligen gillar Yoshimotos bcker ocks. Det gjorde mig mycket intresserad eftersom jag verkligen tycker om Murakami. Och visst finns det en del som pminner om Murakami i Kk, en sorts ltthet i sprket till exempel. Men Murakami r s mycket mer, och lmnar starkare avtryck. Men det var avkopplande och lttlst, och jag kan absolut tnka mig att lsa mer av Yoshimoto om fler titlar verstts till svenska.
