A Japanese woman who has been working at a convenience store for 18 years, much to the disappointment of her family, finds friendship with an alienated, cynical and bitter young man who becomes her coworker.

This book is for anyone who has ever worked behind a counter or felt a like a cog in the machine. It’s also a quick read you can finish in a couple hours. Watch my book talk, and then check out the book for yourself below. You may even be interested in her new book, Earthlings.
