Mieko Kawakami is an astute observer of how relationships are challenged and changed by ideology, particularly ideologies that pertain to gender roles. Breasts and Eggs is a novel that explores “women’s issues,” such as artificial insemination, breast implants, and female puberty. These are not topics that are traditionally represented in literature and it is refreshing to see them written about so intelligently. Mieko Kawakami proves that women’s issues are worthy of artistic representation; in dialogue that is exceptional due to its frankness, a discussion about breast implants is transformed into a work of art.
