The Lake, by Banana Yoshimoto. "A major literary sensation is back with a darkly mysterious masterpiece: a quietly stunning tour de force about the redemptive.
She can not reconcile how he could have reached the point of needing to end his life, to never see her again. As the novel opens after this year, Yoshie has been finally able to move away from Mom and their condo home to the quiet neighborhood of Shimokitazawa. She finds a small flat and secures employment at a small bistro, Les Liens.
She does it all there—cleaning, serving, and working in the kitchen, where she can use what she learned in culinary school. At first it was a good move: I was finally starting to be able to feel the joy in sitting down to a cup of tea, or just getting up in the morning. It was amazing what a difference a change in scenery made.
I could wake-up without my first thought being that Dad was gone. Back at the condo, it welled up every morning, all around the apartment like a hidden message, clouding my heart.
But my happiness was short-lived. One day, out of the blue, without much more than the clothes on her back, Mom moved in. Of course, not wanting to stay home alone, Mom also is at Les Liens for long hours as a customer. Yet, even with the distractions, the lingering questions about her father come to her, sometimes in dreams, especially the one where he is looking for his phone.
