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.
