THE MINDBLOWING NEW NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE CULT INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER CONVENIENCE STORE WOMAN

Shocking, hilarious and hugely, darkly entertaining. Murata has crafted an unforgettable, original hybrid of absurd fantasy and stark realism - Financial Times

Natsuki isn't like the other girls. As youths, she and her cousin Yuu spent the summers in the wild Nagano mountains, hoping for a spaceship to transport her home. When a terrible sequence of events threatens to part the cousins for ever, they make a promise: survive, no matter what.

Now, Natsuki is grown. She lives quietly in an asexual marriage, pretending to be normal, and hiding the horrors of her childhood from her family and friends. But dark shadows from Natsuki's past are pursuing her. Fleeing the suburbs for the mountains, Natsuki prepares for a reunion with Yuu. Will he still remember their promise? And will he help her keep it? Dark, sharp and with a deeply unexpected twist, Earthlings is an exhilarating cosmic flight that will leave you reeling.


'I loved this book! Radical, hilarious, heartbreaking' - Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot

'I loved this book! It easily converted me to being an alien. A radical, hilarious, heartbreaking look at the garbage we have all internalized in order to fit in and survive' Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot

'Shocking, heartbreaking and very funny in short, another cult classic from the author of Convenience Store Woman' Editor's Choice, The Bookseller

'Shocking, hilarious and hugely, darkly entertaining. Murata has crafted an unforgettable, original hybrid of absurd fantasy and stark realism' Financial Times

'Earthlings is a firecracker of a book. If you appreciate trigger warnings, this book requires them all child abuse, violence, incest, and plenty more. But somehow the story skates along the top of all this darkness, and shimmers with a deadpan wit. I loved it' Cal Flynn, Five Books

'Brilliantly translated by Ginny Tapley Takemori... Earthlings shares some DNA with [Convenience Store Woman], with a female central character dealing with feelings of dislocation, but by the end it is altogether weirder and more shocking... Profound and scary in equal measure. Brilliant writing' Big Issue

'As a coded portrait of adolescent anxiety, it's savagely pointed' --Daily Mail
