»Absurd, komisch, klug, mutig und präzise. Einfach überwältigend.« Hiromi Kawakami Die literarische Sensation aus Japan: Eine Außenseiterin findet als Angestellte eines 24-Stunden-Supermarktes ihre wahre Bestimmung. Beeindruckend leicht und elegant entfaltet Sayaka Murata das Panorama einer Gesellschaft, deren Werte und Normen unverrückbar scheinen. Ein Roman, der weit über die Grenzen Japans hinausweist. Keiko Furukura ist anders. Gefühle sind ihr fremd, das Verhalten ihrer Mitmenschen irritiert sie meist. Um nirgendwo anzuecken, bleibt sie für sich. Als sie jedoch auf dem Rückweg von der Uni auf einen neu eröffneten Supermarkt stößt, einen sogenannten Konbini, beschließt sie, dort als Aushilfe anzufangen. Man bringt ihr den richtigen Gesichtsausdruck, das richtige Lächeln, die richtige Art zu sprechen bei. Keikos Welt schrumpft endlich auf ein für sie erträgliches Maß zusammen, sie verschmilzt geradezu mit den Gepflogenheiten des Konbini. Doch dann fängt Shiraha dort an, ein zynischer junger Mann, der sich sämtlichen Regeln widersetzt. Keikos mühsam aufgebautes Lebenssystem gerät ins Wanken. Und ehe sie sichs versieht, hat sie ebendiesen Mann in ihrer Badewanne sitzen. Tag und Nacht.

Stolen Childhoods

Author: Nicola Tyrer
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9780297858799
Release Date: 2011-06-09
Genre: History

The extraordinary stories of the children interned by the Japanese during the Second World War. When the Japanese entered the war in 1941, some 20,000 British civilians in the European colonies in Asia were rounded up and marched off to concentration camps where they were to remain for three long years. Over 3,000 of them were children. This is the first time their extraordinary experiences of suffering, endurance and bravery have been collected together. STOLEN CHILDHOODS offers a window to a forgotten era and explores what happened when that world was brutally and suddenly shattered. Living on what effectively became the frontline of a war, in daily contact with an enemy whose values were totally alien, they witnessed acts of shocking violence. Harrowing, but ultimately uplifting, internment from a child's perspective is a complex - and untold - story. It is a story that features horror, suffering and self-sacrifice, but also celebrates the resilience, adaptability and irrepressibility of the human spirit.
