Review:

'Exhilaratingly weird and funny ... Unsettling and totally unpredictable - my copy is now heavily underlined'--Sally Rooney,Guardian

'A sure-fire hit of the summer... quirky and profound'--Irish Times

'For literary refreshment, try the playful, artful Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata'--Observer

'[A] short, deadpan gem... This is a true original'--Daily Mail

'from this dark and delightful [novel] springs a feminist rallying cry: trust yourself'--Emerald Street

'Murata's fascinating Convenience Store Woman, a tale about a happy misfit that's equal parts wily and disquieting'--'Best Summer Books' selected by Lisa McInerney, Irish Times

'I picked up this novel on a trip to Japan and couldn't put it down. A haunting, dark, and often hilarious take on society's expectations of the single woman. As an extra bonus, it totally transformed my experience of going to convenience stores in Tokyo'--Elif Bautman, author of The Idiot

'A darkly comic novel'--'Best Summer Books', Observer

'Poignant, darkly comic and wonderfully uplifting, this novel will resonate with anyone who has ever felt out of kilter with the world around them'--'Summer Reads',Herald

'This novel made me laugh. It was the first time for me to laugh in this way: it was absurd, comical, cute... audacious, and precise. It was overwhelming'--Hiromi Kawakami, author of Strange Weather in Tokyo

'Convenience Store Woman is a gem of a book. Quirky, deadpan, poignant, and quietly profound, it is a gift to anyone who has ever felt at odds with the world - and if we were truly being honest, I suspect that would be most of 'us''--Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being

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

'The compelling English-language debut from Sayaka Murata ... enthralling'--Book Oxygen

'When the protagonist [of Convenience Store Woman], a social outcast, is placed within the box of the artificially normalized convenience store, we begin to vividly see the strangeness of the people in the world outside'--Yoko Ogawa, author of The Housekeeper and the Professor

'What a weird and wonderful and deeply satisfying book this is. Sayaka Murata is an utterly unique and revolutionary voice. I tore through Convenience Store Woman with great delight'--Jami Attenberg, author of The Middlesteins

'I was really amazed by Convenience Store Woman and the particular reality it exquisitely portrays... I am sincerely delighted that such a novel has come into being'--Ryu Murakami, author of In the Miso Soup

'Convenience Store Woman is snarky and tender. It shows a woman trying to puzzle out how to be normal. This brilliant book will resonate with all of us who find life a little strange'--Rowan Hisayo Buchanen, author of Harmless Like You

'Adorable!' -- --Before Brunch

From the Back Cover:

She found sanctuary in a supermarket. Now she's about to lose it. Keiko isn't normal. At school and university, people find her 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 Japanese literary sensation with over 650,000 copies sold and the winner of the prestigious Akutagawa Prize, Convenience Store Woman is this summer's must-read oddball comedy. Convenience Store Woman comes in three colours: blue, yellow and pink. 'Exhilaratingly weird and funny ... Unsettling and totally unpredictable - my copy is now heavily underlined'--Sally Rooney,Guardian 'A sure-fire hit of the summer... quirky and profound'--Irish Times 'For literary refreshment, try the playful, artful Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata'--Observer
