Praise for The Nakano Thrift Shop

“A gentle, humorous novel.”
The Wall Street Journal

“Charming, quirky, and wise, this is a warmhearted character study of the undervalued, the obsolete, and the hidden gems among us all.”
—Monique Truong, author of Bitter in the Mouth

“Subtle, graceful, wise and threaded on a quirky humour, this exploration of the connections and disconnections between people kept me smiling long after the last page.”
—Julia Rochester, author of The House at the End of the World

“The Nakano Thrift Shop
is really a love story, albeit a very offbeat one… A gentle book, full of charm [and] radiating leftfield charisma.”
Emerald Street

“Hiromi Kawakami’s charming novel illuminates moments of kindness, love and friendship that pop up like the unexpected treasures amid the shop’s dusty collection of pretty mismatched bowls and plates, castoff eyeglasses, task lamps and old electric fans.”
—The Minneapolis Star Tribune

“. . .[A] modern Japanese slice-of-life drama.”
