    Keiko er 36 år gammel og arbejder på attende år i en døgnkiosk i Tokyo. Hendes familie og venner vil så gerne have, at hun får et bedre job, og at hun gifter sig. Men Keiko ønsker ikke at få sit forhold til døgnkiosken ødelagt. Døgnkioskmennesket er et tankevækkende portræt af samtidens Japan, som det opleves af en singlekvinde. Hun føler ubehag ved samfundets rigide normalitetsopfattelse, samtidig med at hun kun alt for godt passer ind i den japanske arbejdskultur. "Elegant social komedie med filosofisk og kritisk potentiale. En af den slags romaner der virkelig formår at skrive læseren ind i en mulig måde at være i verden på." Politiken, 5 hjerter "En moderne fabel om at være normal i en unormal verden, der kalder sig normal." - Jyllands-Posten, 5 stjerner

    Ny roman af forfatteren til bestselleren Døgnkioskmennesket. Natsuki vokser op med bevidstheden om, at hun er anderledes. Drømmen om, at et rumskib engang vil komme og bringe hende tilbage til hendes sande hjem, holder hende oppe i en uforstående verden. Som voksen bruger hun al sin energi på at virke normal. Men en dag bryder hun op fra Tokyo og rejser tilbage til Akishina, tilbage til et gensyn med sin højtelskede fætter, Yuu. Og overvejer, om der mon alligevel findes en vej ud af livet som jordboer. Romanens slutning har vakt en del opsigt hos læsere verden over. "Jordboerne er en barsk roman om en ung kvinde, der føler sig forkert, men i virkeligheden er mere "rigtig" end alle de andre indoktrinerede samfundsborgere til sammen. Tag den, Japan! Tag den, verden." Jyllands-Posten, 4 stjerner

    The English-language debut of one of Japan's most talented contemporary writers, selling over 650,000 copies there, Convenience Store Woman is the heartwarming and surprising story of thirty-six-year-old Tokyo resident Keiko Furukura. Keiko has never fit in, neither in her family, nor in school, but when at the age of eighteen she begins working at the Hiiromachi branch of "Smile Mart," she finds peace and purpose in her life. In the store, unlike anywhere else, she understands the rules of social interaction--many are laid out line by line in the store's manual--and she does her best to copy the dress, mannerisms, and speech of her colleagues, playing the part of a "normal" person excellently, more or less. Managers come and go, but Keiko stays at the store for eighteen years. It's almost hard to tell where the store ends and she begins. Keiko is very happy, but the people close to her, from her family to her coworkers, increasingly pressure her to find a husband, and to start a proper career, prompting her to take desperate action... A brilliant depiction of an unusual psyche and a world hidden from view, Convenience Store Woman is an ironic and sharp-eyed look at contemporary work culture and the pressures to conform, as well as a charming and completely fresh portrait of an unforgettable heroine.

    "With Life Ceremony, the incomparable Sayaka Murata, whose Convenience Store Woman has now sold more than a million copies worldwide, returns with a brilliant and wonderfully unsettling collection, her most recent fiction to be published in Japan. In these twelve stories, Murata mixes an unusual cocktail of humor and horror and turns the norms and traditions of society on their head to better question them. In "A First-Rate Material," Nana and Naoki are happily engaged, but Naoki can't stand the conventional use of deceased people's bodies for clothing, accessories, and furniture, and a disagreement around this threatens to derail their perfect wedding day. "Lovers on the Breeze" is told from the perspective of a curtain in a child's bedroom that jealously watches the young girl Naoko as she has her first kiss with a boy from her class and does its best to stop her. "Eating the City" explores the strange norms around food and foraging, while "Hatchling" closes the collection with an extraordinary depiction of the fractured personality of someone who tries too hard to fit in. In these strange and wonderful stories of family and friendship, sex and intimacy, belonging and individuality, Murata asks what it means to be a human in a world that often seems very strange, and offers answers that surprise and linger."--
