His mother ate fugu , which is poisonous if prepared incorrectly, after a friend served it to her for dinner. Kikuko is quiet around her father, but becomes more animated when he leaves the siblings alone. When the siblings go to the backyard to chat, Kikuko tells the narrator that she and her boyfriend are considering hitchhiking through America.

The siblings then discuss the well in the backyard and the ghost that they used to believe haunted it. Without responding directly to this news, the narrator tells Kikuko that he sees the ghost, and describes her as an old woman in a white kimono.

Kikuko thinks he is trying to scare her. He shows the narrator several empty rooms, and then a single cluttered room that houses a model battleship.

When the family sits down to dinner, the narrator examines a photograph that depicts an old woman in a white kimono. The father replies that there is plenty, and they all reach for more. After dinner, the narrator sits with his father in the tea-room. The story ends as the father expresses his hope that his children will come back home to live with him.

He admits his suspicion that the narrator will return to America, but believes that Kikuko will come home after finishing college. A Family Supper. Plot Summary. All Symbols The Well Fugu. LitCharts Teacher Editions. Teach your students to analyze literature like LitCharts does.

Analysis of Kazuo Ishiguro’s "A Family Supper"

When Kikuko joins them, the father goes off to prepare the supper, leaving the brother and sister to take a stroll in the garden together where Kikuko talks about her life at university. They also recall their childhood fears of the ghost the son believes to have seen in the garden once. Before dinner, the father decides to show his son around the house. While they are eating, the son confuses a picture of his mother with the appearance of the garden ghost he remembers, which angers his father. The short story closes with the father inviting his son to come home again and confiding his hopes that his daughter may return home too. On the surface, this short story may appear shallow, perhaps even slightly confusing.

A Family Supper. A Family Supper by Kazuo Ishiguro is a short story that tells of a young man visiting from his father's home in Japan. He comes home for dinner that night and relives unfortunate and difficult memories from his childhood. The young man's mother had a gruesome death from eating a poisonous fish called fugu and left her husband, son and daughter alone. The son's father, a WWII veteran, is still fully grieving the death of his wife. The story is told through conversation and shared memories between the son and his father and sister. The family is quite solemn and only the daughter expresses any sign of vividness or spirit when the son comes home; she is often giggling around her brother.
