Hello, I am crying. Any ode to libraries has my whole heart. This picture book is an ode to public libraries from the point of view of a young immigrant mother, based on Morales' own experiences. Flashback to all the times my own immigrant mother took me to our local public library… Stunning, beautiful, determined, compassionate. What a gift. [Tanya]

If you've ever felt like an alien on earth, you will love this absurd, sparkling book. What shapes a life? What gives it meaning? Who gets to decide what is meaningful? I was charmed by this book's details, its brevity that says so much. Convenience Store Woman won Japan’s prestigious Akutagawa Prize for literature in 2016; it is a blessing that Sayaka Murata's novel (her tenth) is available to us now, translated by Ginny Tapley Takemori.

In this epic there's room under the sky for characters taciturn and loyal, loving and illogical, searching, settling, surviving. If you read only one Western, this should be it. [Raissa]
