Moshi moshi by Banana YoshimotoDopo aver perso il padre in quello che ha tutta l’aria di essere stato un doppio suicidio d’amore, Yoshie si trasferisce dalla sua casa di Meguro a un minuscolo e vecchio appartamento a Shimokitazawa, un quartiere di Tokyo famoso per le sue stradine chiuse al traffico, i ristoranti, i negozietti, nonché meta degli alternativi della capitale. Qui Yoshie spera, aiutata dall’atmosfera vivace, di superare il dolore e dare una nuova direzione alla sua vita. Un giorno, però, sua madre le si presenta a casa all’improvviso con una borsa Birkin di Hermès e qualche sacchetto. Inizia così una bizzarra convivenza che unisce le due donne lungo il percorso di elaborazione del lutto che le ha colpite, le pone di fronte a verità inaspettate, le aiuta a scorgere fiochi lumi di speranza nel buio di una quotidianità ferita.Moshi moshi – “pronto” al telefono – è il racconto di una rinascita, la favola delicata e struggente della vita di un quartiere, la storia di una madre, di una figlia, di un grande dolore e di qualche piccola felicità inattesa.

This novel of a young Japanese girl grieving her father is "an unlikely, engrossing Tokyo ghost story. You won't be able to take your mind off it" Marie Claire. Yoshie's much-loved musician father has died in a suicide pact with an unknown woman. It is only when Yoshie and her mother move to Shimokitazawa, a traditional Tokyo neighborhood of narrow streets, quirky shops, and friendly residents, that they can finally start to put their painful past behind them. But despite their attempts to move forward, Yoshie is haunted by nightmares in which her father is looking for the phone he left behind on the day he died, or in which she is trying—unsuccessfully—to call him.
Yoshimoto deploys a magically Japanese light touch to emotionally and existentially tough subject matter: domestic disarray, loneliness, identity issues, lovesickness You won't be able to take your mind off it. Yoshimoto's beautiful imagery-the cherry tree in front of the Les Liens bistro where Yochan works, restaurants glowing late at night, the coziness among the restaurant staff members, all captures the spirit of Shimokitazawa and marks Yochan's slow return to an anchored life The translator, Yoneda, enables English readers to fully appreciate Yoshimoto's subdued, yet sharp, rendering of a young woman emerging from grief and moving forward with her dreams. A fleeting portrait of a critical moment in a young woman's life, one with which the late John Hughes might have felt some kinship.
