Convenience Store Woman

Sayaka Murata, Ginny Tapley Takemori, Ginny Tapley Takemori

From Shelf: All the books I read in the first half of 2023!

The surprise smash hit - Japan's answer to Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.

'Exhilaratingly weird and funny... Unsettling and totally unpredictable - my copy is now heavily underlined' Sally Rooney THE UNEXPECTED INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Meet Keiko. She's 36 years old, has never had a boyfriend, and she's been working in the same supermarket for eighteen years. Keiko's family wishes she'd get a proper job. Her friends wonder why she won't get married. But Keiko knows what makes her happy, and she's not going to let anyone come between her and her convenience store... A cult hit around the world, Convenience Store Woman is both a feminist rallying cry and a must-read oddball comedy. 'A gem of a book. Quirky, deadpan, poignant and quietly profound' Ruth Ozeki 'Darkly comic' Observer '[A] short, deadpan gem... A true original' Daily Mail 'What a weird and wonderful and deeply satisfying book this is. Sayaka Murata is an utterly unique and revolutionary voice. I tore through it with great delight' Jami Attenberg
