FICTION 23 What should I read next? Eleano r Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman Convenience Store Woman Sayaka Murata Keiko Furukura has spent the last 18 years working part-time in the same 24-hour Tokyo convenience store. She is often puzzled by the unpredictable behaviour of those around her, so finds peace and purpose in the mandated tasks and rote interactions she experiences at the store. At 36, Keiko is well past the age at which women are expected to have married and had children, and as pressure mounts, she makes an unusually rash decision that has unexpected consequences. This novel is a fresh and delightfully funny exploration of the roles women play and the pressures to conform to societal expectations.
