There are normal people, and then there is Keiko.
'Exhilaratingly weird and funny, unsettling and totally unpredictable'
At school and university, people find Keiko odd, and her family worries she will never fit in. To make them happy, Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks.
But in Keiko's circle it just won't 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 cult hit around the world, Convenience Store Woman is both feminist rallying cry and must-read oddball comedy.
**Sayaka Murata’s mindblowing new novel EARTHLINGS is out now**
'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'
‘A gem of a book. Quirky, deadpan, poignant and quietly profound’
