Description

She found sanctuary in a supermarket. Now she’s about to lose it.

Keiko is not normal. At school and university, people find her bizarre, and her circle of relatives worries she will never fit in. To cause them to happy, Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple day-to-day tasks.

But in Keiko’s circle it just may not do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and ordering green tea. As the pressure to find a new job – or worse, a husband – increases, Keiko is forced to take desperate action…

A Japanese literary sensation with over 650,000 copies sold and the winner of the prestigious Akutagawa Prize, Convenience Store Woman is this summer’s should-read oddball comedy.

‘A haunting, dark, and continuously hilarious take on society’s expectations of the single woman‘ Elif Batuman, creator of The Idiot

‘A sure-fire hit of the summer… quirky [and] profound’ Irish Times

‘A new book from an incredible woman… from this dark and delightful [novel] springs a feminist rallying cry: accept as true with yourself’ Emerald Street

An offbeat, tongue-in-cheek read… a tale of finding one’s own path to happiness’ Skinny
