Staff Choice

Offbeat and quirky, this gem of a novel is a treasure to anyone who has ever felt a little odd! Keiko finds peace in the routine of her life as a convenience store worker. The day has a rhythm and gives her purpose – she’s content. But society expects more from her as both a woman and an adult, and she struggles to understand why as she strives to appease those around her. Sayake Murata manages to balance light humour with a quiet poignancy and I urge you – if you’ve ever felt the burden of expectation, or just found the world around you a bit strange sometimes, pick up this book! You won’t be disappointed.
