Product description

From the Inside Flap

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. Mixed covers (Blue, yellow and pink).
