Convenience Store Woman

Sayaka Murata

What Min Jin Lee Says: Sayaka Murata’s brilliant novel follows 36-year-old Keiko Furukura, who has devoted half her life to working part-time at a Japanese convenience store, or a konbini. What makes this work so delightful and immersive is how Murata’s Keiko subverts societal norms and lives her life as a deeply original person.

What They Say: “Murata’s gloriously nutty deadpan prose and even more nuttily likeable narrator are irresistible” - The Observer
