'You will be obsessed.' LEILA SLIMANI

'It will keep you firmly in its grips.' OYINKAN BRAITHWAITE

The Woman in the Purple Skirt is being watched. Someone is following her, always perched just out of sight, monitoring which buses she takes; what she eats; whom she speaks to. But this invisible observer isn't a stalker - it's much more complicated than that.

Reading this novel, you can really hear Natsuko Imamura's unique voice, which comes across quite unsparingly and beautifully. -- Hiromi Kawakami

A superb story . . . I was mesmerized by this narrator. Unlikable men who hold our sympathy are frequently found in fiction, but I don't think I've ever encountered a woman as unappealing as this one who still managed to keep me completely beguiled. -- Suichi Yoshida

The Woman in the Purple Skirt is like a love story overheard on a park bench. It's a thriller about commutes, work schedules, and unemployment. It's a bottle of hotel shampoo that makes its way into your shower, and you can't seem to remember how it got there. What profound and giddy prose; I could not put this book down. Imamura is a glorious architect of perspective, surprising and breaking this reader's heart at every turn. -- Hilary Leichter

I tore through this novel. Grippingly and intimately told, with prose as tight as a wire, The Woman in the Purple Skirt is a quick and powerful jab to the heart. -- Jami Attenberg
