Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata

After I finished this brief (160 pages), unexpected, quirky gem of the book, I didn't have the words to describe it. Long after I finished Convenience Store Woman (2018) by Sayaka Murata, I kept thinking about it. This offbeat, moving story follows 36-year-old Keiko, who has spent half her life working at a convenience store. She’s content with her life. Others are not.

An engaging take on societal expectations and adulthood. Recommended for fans of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.
