Staff Reviews


A darkly humorous, compulsively readable exploration of normativity through the eyes of a content but maladjusted young woman who, despite societal pressures, is simply not wired to conform. Perfect for helping anyone who has ever felt they're not living "the right way" become convinced otherwise.

— Ksenia

June 2018 Indie Next List


“Keiko Furukura has worked at her local convenience store for 18 years. Every day, she ensures that the shelves are tidy, the hot food bar is stocked, and the featured items are adequately displayed. She greets every customer with a cheerful ‘Irasshaimase!’ and no one notices that she’s never fit in anywhere else. Murata draws lush descriptions of the beauty of order and routine out of simple, spare prose, and every page crackles with the life she’s created. Because of the humor, the wit, the almost unbearable loveliness of it all, Convenience Store Woman, a small book about a quiet life, makes an enormous impact on the reader.”
— Lauren Peugh, Powell's Books, Portland, OR
