"An international sensation that has sold more than a million copies in Japan and was named a Best Book of the Year by U.S. publications from Buzzfeed to the New Yorker, Convenience Store Woman is the charming and unforgettable story of Tokyo sales clerk Keiko Furukura. Keiko is an unusual person, someone who has never fit in, but when she takes a job at a 'Smile Mart' she finally finds peace and purpose in her daily tasks. But there is huge pressure on Keiko--to pursue a career, to find a husband--and she feels forced to take desperate action in order to please the people around her instead of herself. Is there room in this 'normal' world for someone as strange as Keiko?"--Publisher description.
