NCW Book Club: Convenience Store Woman
Join us and share your passion for reading! Every three months we will meet over tea and biscuits to discuss some of the best works in contemporary literature. We’ll explore short stories, novels, non-fiction, poetry, and works in translation, making these informal and friendly sessions the perfect way to meet like-minded readers and to discover exciting new reads. We’ll always choose books that are easy to find in the library and bookshops.
This quarter we’ll be talking about Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata and translated by Ginny Tapley Takemori, which became an international sensation when it was published in 2018. Widely acclaimed for its ‘weird, fluorescent kind of beauty all of its own’ (Julie Myerson, Guardian) we’ll explore together the strange world of this modern Japanese classic in an informal, friendly discussion.
Convenience Store Woman is available from Norfolk and Suffolk Libraries services, and from bookshops.
Spaces are limited so we recommend booking your place in advance.
