Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
"Beneath the candyfloss exterior of Yoshimoto's writing..., her characters' lives are anything but rosy....Behind Maria's reminiscences, we come to suspect, lies a deep emotional pain. The nostalgia that fills the book is for a happy childhood that never existed. But these intriguingly discordant notes are not strong enough to cut through the saccharine haze that surrounds them."
