SYP London February Book Club: Convenience Store Woman

February 2, 2021 @ 7:00 PM - February 9, 2021 @ 8:00 PM

Our next Book Club meeting is Tuesday 9 February 7-8pm, and our book of the month is the darkly comic Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata!

Keiko has never really fitted in. At school and university people find her odd and her family worries she’ll never be normal. To appease them, Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store. Here, she finds peace and purpose in the simple, daily tasks and routine interactions. She is, she comes to understand, happiest as a convenience store worker. But in Keiko’s social circle it just won’t do for an unmarried woman to spend all her time stacking shelves and re-ordering green tea. As pressure mounts on Keiko to find either a new job, or worse, a husband, she is forced to take desperate action.

Discussions are relaxed and informal, and new members are very welcome!
