What Our Staff Says:

“Keiko is like a lot of us. You may find yourself deeply understanding her at times and others you couldn’t be more unlike her. Like how did she stay a convenience store worker for 18 years?! She knows her convenience store so well that she hears its rhythmic routines pacing her every thought. She feels perfectly content in her mundane routines but other times her more relatable nature shows. Keiko feels an unmistakable guilt for not meeting her societal obligations. Nagging sisters. Missed connections with parents. Service industry work. These are the themes that made this book such an unexpected delight. ‘Convenience Store Woman’ gave me a new cultural perspective from the point of view of single, middle aged, Japanese service worker, Keiko.”
