About the event
Our November Book Club will be centred around Sayaka Murata’s ‘Convenience Store Woman', first published in 2019.
We suggest that everyone who would like to join our Book Club on this date acquires the book (either electronic or physical, whichever you prefer), and comes prepared to talk about it. Even if you started reading but didn’t finish, you are still welcome to join, but please be aware that discussions can cover all aspects of the book, including the ending.
Room2 in Chiswick where we will meet also serve food and drinks should you wish to purchase anything.
‘Convenience Store Woman’ Book description:
'Exhilaratingly weird and funny... Unsettling and totally unpredictable - my copy is now heavily underlined' Sally Rooney
Meet Keiko. She's 36 years old, has never had a boyfriend, and she's been working in the same supermarket for eighteen years.
Keiko's family wishes she'd get a proper job. Her friends wonder why she won't get married.
But Keiko knows what makes her happy, and she's not going to let anyone come between her and her convenience store...
A cult hit around the world, Convenience Store Woman is both a feminist rallying cry and a must-read oddball comedy.
'A gem of a book. Quirky, deadpan, poignant and quietly profound' Ruth Ozeki
