How many times have we taken breath? What happens afterwards? The book is narrated in a clear and uiet fashion Other issues such as the mother’s alcoholicism or the troubling war memories of the old man are also discreetly incorporated In this way a children’s novel is built up which excludes nothing which touches on the horrible without dramatising it which treats a delicate issue lightly but never frivolously Neue Züricher and which uietly brings a strange culture closer “Natsu no niwa” received the Boston Globe Horn Award 1997 and was nominated for the German Juvenile’s Literature Prize 1996; it was made into a film by Shinji Somai 1996Again and again Yumoto takes up the difficult experiences of growing up and the conflicts that for children can be associated with it In doing so she never avoids serious uestions such as illness death suicide and religion as in the book for young adults “Popura no aki” 1997; Engl “The Letters” 2002 her third novel that was translated into German Chiaki a young woman remembers how she moved into the “Poplar House” with her mother when she was six years old There the eccentric yet loveable landlady Mrs Yanagi helped her to fight her anxieties – which above all had to do with the to her incomprehensible fact of her father’s death When the old lady tells her that she will convey letters to the dead when dying Chiaki starts writing letters to her father dealing with her pain and her uestions Very often in Yumoto’s novels old people play a fundamental role “I believe that there is a kind of relationship with children that is only feasible for adults who at the same time are not the parents and that such a relationship can strongly influence a child’s course in a certain part of its life” Kazumi Yumoto lives in Tokyo From
