The primary theme in Ishiguro's story "A Family Supper," is the conflict between generations in changing Japan. Meaning
the ways of past generations are giving way to new values that have not been fully developed in the younger generations. One exanple of this being that suicide, carried out in the face of defeat have now lost of its meaning and honor in younger generations.
