The Asia Society Book Salon – EarthlingsVIEW EVENT DETAILS
By Sayaka Murata
This time we will read Earthlings by Sayaka Murata, author of award-winning novel The Convenience Store Woman.
As a child, Natsuki doesn’t fit into her family. Nor into her school where she is scolded or ignored and even preyed upon by a young teacher. As she grows up in a hostile, violent world, she consoles herself with memories of her time with cousin Yuu in the mountains of Nagano and discovers a surprisingly potent inner power. Even as a married woman she wonders if there is more to this world than the mundane reality everyone else seems to accept. The answers are out there – yes, aliens are a thing in this novel –, and Natsuki has the power to find them.
This Event is for Asia Society Members only. How to become a member?
