'Unapologetically deadpan yet enticingly comic... it's the novel's cumulative, idiosyncratic poetry that lingers, attaining a weird, fluorescent kind of beauty all of its own... Irresistible'--Observer

'An exhilaratingly weird and funny Japanese novel about a long-term convenience store employee. Unsettling and totally unpredictable - my copy is now heavily underlined'--Sally Rooney, Guardian

'Convenience Store Woman is a gem of a book. Quirky, deadpan, poignant, and quietly profound, it is a gift to anyone who has ever felt at odds with the world - and if we were truly being honest, I suspect that would be most of 'us'' -- Ruth Ozeki, author of A Tale for the Time Being

'Witty, wily, and astonishingly sharp, Convenience Store Woman proves that the deepest gouges can come from the lightest touch.'-- Lisa McInerney, author of The Glorious Heresies

'Convenience Store Woman is snarky and tender. It shows a woman trying to puzzle out how to be normal. This brilliant book will resonate with all of us who find life a little strange.'-- --Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of Harmless Like You

'I picked up this novel on a trip to Japan and couldn't put it down. A haunting, dark, and often hilarious take on society's expectations of the single woman.'-- --Elif Batuman, author of The Idiot
