My Year of Meats was highly successful in calling attention to the seemingly disparate yet related issues: meat woman`s body, and transnational media. In interweaving two women`s lives in the United States and Japan through a television series on meat, Ozeki`s novel uncovers illegal practices of feedlot and the gruesome outcome of such practices embodied in a sterile woman. The novel`s merging of various themes has invited critical responses from multiple fields. While the variety of critical work is a proof of the novel`s achievements this essay argues that My Year of Mazts remains problematic at its core. This is because the novel`s endorsement of transpacific alliances of women through motherhood served the then-emerging postwhite nationalist narrative of the United States, shored up by the multicultural/multiethnic family and their American children of varying shades. By investigating the ways the "multi-" and "trans.," abounding in the novel, are deterritorialized and reterritorialized within the new American Frontier of the 1990s, my essay argues the need to be wary of such liberatory notions as difference and mobility, which are actively advertised to redefine American global hegemony. I argue that this wariness towards Americanism is the novel`s main 1essor, along with the due fear of unhealthy American meat detailed in the novel.
