Sayaka Murata, author of the bestseller »Convenience Store Woman«, tells in her new novel about young Natsuki and her cousin Yu, neither of whom feels they belong to this world. With a protagonist »on an escalating odyssey between lostness and escaping the world, powerlessness and resistance, naivety and insanity«, Sayaka Murata succeeds in creating a »breathtaking and mysterious novel« [Frankfurter Rundschau].
