There are normal people, and then there is Keiko.

'Exhilaratingly weird and funny, unsettling and totally unpredictable' - Sally Rooney

Keiko isn't normal. At school and university, people find her odd, and her family worries she will never fit in. To make them happy, Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks.

But in Keiko's circle it just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and ordering green tea. As the pressure to find a new job - or worse, a husband - increases, Keiko is forced to take desperate action... A cult hit around the world, Convenience Store Woman is both feminist rallying cry and must-read oddball comedy.
