Convenience Store Woman: A Review + I Don’t Call Myself an Ally


Mariquita talks about Convenience Store Woman, the English language debut novel by Sayaka Murata, published in 2016 by Grove Press. Convenience Store Woman challenges ideas of capitalism, expectation, and contentment. In Convenience Store Woman, Murata provides readers with a different perspective and a new lens with which to view the world. Then Renee gives us a reminder to check in with ourselves as we set intentions for Social Justice in 2022.
