By the Book: Book Club October 2019 - Convenience Store Woman

This month, our book club loudly greets listeners with an 'Irasshaimase!', as we discuss Convenience Store Woman, Sayaka Murata's award-winning novel about a woman in her 30s who desires nothing more than to be a convenience store worker while living in a society that doesn't see any value in that position. After that, we discuss Japanese fiction and its specific tone and style.

Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
