“This quirky Japanese novel is about a woman named Keiko who has been working in the same small convenience store for the last 18 years – much to her friends and family’s dismay. But what does it take to be a ‘productive member of society’ and what happens if we reject those expectations that are forced upon us? Equally darkly funny and weirdly disturbing, this is a short book that packs a great punch!” Bob
