Keiko Furukura lives an atypical life At thirty six years old she's a virgin and completely disinterested in romantic relationships She has worked part time at a Japanese convenience store for eighteen years Her family was thrilled when she was first employed because they saw it as a sign of her growth as a person Keiko has always been considered peculiar but the job helped her finally become an ordinary person The convenience store is a dependable normal world where she's valued as an eual amongst her coworkers and receives no scrutiny about her personal life Best of all there's a written manual that tells her exactly how she needs to behave She absorbs the personalities of her coworkers and uses them to construct her own normal person identity Infecting each other like this is how we maintain ourselves as human Everyone assumed that the convenience store was just the first step in Keiko's journey to bigger and better things but she's still in the same spot almost two decades later The biggest sign of her evolution has become additional evidence of her deficiencies I absorb the world around me and that’s changing all the time Just as all the water that was in my body last time we met has now been replaced with new water the things that make up me have changed too Keiko's atypical lifestyle causes discomfort for everyone around her She's such an anomaly Her family and friends are always trying to fix her but she feels perfectly fine the way she is The only thing that causes her discomfort is everyone else's judgment She has a stockpile of vague prepared answers to defuse awkward situations but those answers aren't working any as she ages Keiko values her relationships and doesn't want to be cut off from her social groups so she decides that it might be easier to just meet their demands She doesn't even have to lie She announces a life change and everyone fills in the blanks based on the standard story Sadly she realizes she never really belonged at all even with the people she felt the most comfortable As she takes a single step into normalcy even her safe places become places of scrutiny  Succumbing to one societal demand just leads to expectations Keiko notices that having a troubled normal life is acceptable than having a content abnormal life “Look anyone who doesn’t fit in with the village loses any right to privacy They’ll trample all over you as they please You either get married and have kids or go hunting and earn money and anyone who doesn’t contribute to the village in one of these forms is a heretic And the villagers will come poking their noses into your life as much as they want” At 176 pages this darkly uirky novel is a uick read Japanese convenience stores sound amazing I never thought I'd want to visit another country and immediately run to a convenience store The language is plain and some of the concepts were mentioned repetitively but I adored Keiko She has a cold logical attitude but I felt so warm towards her despite some of her darker inclinations I really liked the relationship between Keiko and her sister and how it evolved throughout the story This little novel also tapped into some deep rage Keiko encounters freuent misogyny throughout the story Keiko's experiences triggered memories of rude comments I received when I was a romantic late bloomer during a brief stint at Taco Bell and while I was pursuing an art degree Even when I got a great design job right out of college one of my professors responded Oh well We all have to start somewhere Those experiences made me feel extra empathetic towards Keiko The awkward scenes where Keiko is singled out made me cringe The normal world has no room for exceptions and always uietly eliminates foreign objects Anyone who is lacking is disposed of So that’s why I need to be cured Unless I’m cured normal people will expurgate me  Finally I understood why my family had tried so hard to fix me The convenience store mirrors life; the parts change but the whole stays the same Perhaps we're still trapped in old fashioned social paradigms even though we tend to see ourselves as evolved than people from past eras An innate manual is passed on to everyone for centuries get married have babies make money Anyone who doesn't meet those standards must be persuaded to take the correct path or be ostracised Of course even if you meet those standards there's always something else to obtain When it comes to making everyone happy the goalposts are constantly moving Keiko also notices there's always someone lower in the hierarchy People who feel attacked find their own people to lash out at Everyone even her euals is vocal about what's wrong with Keiko and what she needs to do to succeed Will Keiko be able to drown out all the voices and accept her true calling or will she conform to societal demands Convenience Store Woman is a strange little book with an interesting protagonist If you like this book I think you might also like Nineveh by Henrietta Rose InnesI received this book for free from Netgalley and Grove AtlanticGrove Press This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review It will be available June 12 2018
