Christoph  Peters - Mitsuko's Restaurant


“...A literary delicacy…” NDR

"Reading Peters is like going to the movies." Berliner Morgenpost

“His novel is clever, funny, and well informed in the things of Japanese culture.” Western German Broadcasting 5

“One gladly talks about such a book. There is a clear story that can be told, and interesting background. And there is a clear opinion among reviewers, an enthusiastic one. In short: Christoph Peters brings Japan as close as a European can get to it. And it is also the most humorous book of the author’s yet.” Southwest German Broadcasting 2

“Flaccid, insipid novels are not (yet) in on the shelves German supermarkets, but they do lie packed and shrink-wrapped in the rummage table of bookstores. The difference between them and the literature that Christoph Peters provides for us here is as much as that between plastic sushi and freshly prepared shabu-sahabu.” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

“Christoph Peters has succeeded in writing an elegant, humorous, and sensuous novel, which, not least, also celebrates eating.” Die Tageszeitung

“A fabulously lighthanded novel.” Journal Frankfurt

“A wonderfully light development and love novel with threads of a mystery. … He closely juxtaposes the archaic and the modern, the significant and the secular, the exotic and the mundane, the bourgeois and the abysmal, producing sparks – dazzling and humorous, but also mysterious and uncanny – from the collisions of cultures and mentalities.” Berliner Tagesspiegel 

“Peters narrates with masterful lightness, dispersing here and there a few points, and making out of dialogue what it is in good literature: a mood barometer.” Rheinische Post

“Elegant, sensuous, and humorous – a life story that will warm the heart.” Schweriner Volkszeitung

“A very sensuous and often tongue-in-cheek reading pleasure.” Nordwest-Zeitung

“Peters composes a wonderful, harmonious and literarily delicious menu from the dissonance of a German Japan and Japanese-German romance.” Badische Zeitung
