This is a popular new book you have probably heard of It’s short almost a novella by a Japanese woman author The blurbs call it ‘darkly comic’Keiko is 36 and she has been working part time in a convenience store in Tokyo for 18 years She’s an excellent worker – a dream employee who loves her job – so much so that she even comes in on occasion unpaid on her time off to help out She can’t even help herself from straightening things out in other stores she doesn’t even work in Keiko has always had issues – some would say she is mentally challenged or ‘lacks commons sense’ Ever since she was a child she did things like this view spoiler at school her teacher was trying to break up a fight among some boys so Keiko wanting to help out grabs a nearby shovel and hits one of the boys in the head She doesn’t understand what she did wrong hide spoiler

review コンビニ人間 Konbini ningen

コンビニ人間 Konbini ningenでもコンビニのレジを打ち、清潔なコンビニの風景と「いらっしゃいませ」の掛け声が、毎日の安らかな眠りをもたらしてくれる。仕事も家庭もある同窓生たちからどんなに不思議がられても、完璧なマニュアルの存在するコンビニこそが、私. Keiko has worked at the convenience store her entire adult life But as she nears 40 the pressure to find a “real” job or get married is mounting – what sort of life awaits Keiko outside the comfort zone of the store and will she step out to meet it I feel like there’s a good novel somewhere in Convenience Store Woman but Sayaka Murata didn’t realise it Her commentary on conformist society and the individual is inane and unoriginal though far worse is her muddled placement of the main character within that commentary It’s never explicitly stated but Keiko is obviously autistic She doesn’t understand human behaviour talks repeatedly about the maskdisguise she wears and takes her cues from her peers mimicking their body language speech patterns and dress to pass as “normal” – not that she cares all that much about being “normal” but she feels life is easier if that’s how people perceive her She comes off as robotic and unemotional She has no interest in sex or relationships in general She works thinks and lives mechanically She even has her sister come up with lines for her to repeat in social situations to seem like a “normal” person She’s practical to a fault An anecdote from her childhood which also shows that her behaviour is not the result of working in a convenience store two boys are fighting in the schoolyard someone calls to break them up so Keiko grabs a shovel and smacks one of the boys on the head nearly killing him She doesn’t understand – she broke up the fight didn’t she Later on her sister’s baby is crying and she briefly thinks that she knows a way to permanently stop it making noise and stressing her sister out There’s no malice behind the thought of killing a baby she’s just thinking practically without understanding appropriate social behaviour though she knows enough not to act on it So I would definitely say that Keiko’s autistic or at the very least somewhere on the spectrum Not that anything’s wrong with that of course but then what’s the novel’s point Murata seems to be critical of a conformist society where certain jobs relegate people to cogs within a machine – dehumanised essentially – in a society with far too rigidly defined roles with no room for individual expression leading to unsatisfied lives Except Keiko is happy to be a cog in a machine because of the way her brain is wired And it wasn’t society that did this to her she was simply born this way She fully embraces the role of convenience store worker as it’s clearly defined and therefore understandable She could do without societal rules with its grounding in complex human behaviour which she’s never understood Her character arc is non existent She knows her place in the world and she’s satisfied with it She starts and ends as a convenience store worker Something happens – which was completely arbitrary and never explained along the way that takes her out of that setting but it only confirms her contentment with her lot in life and puts her back where she started Is the point then that society should accept that some people are fine withdon’t care about “low” status Or that the rules should be different for someone who’s autisticon the spectrum who clearly can’t handledoesn’t want the complexities that come with traditional ideas of success – high paying jobs lots of material possessions families etc I found Convenience Store Woman underwhelming as its ultimate message – you’ve got one life to live it’
