One of John Freeman’s 29 Writers to Watch

“Whimsical… Described as Haruki Murakami’s “favorite young novelist,” Kawakami is destined to charm Anglophone audiences as well.” — Library Journal

“A touching novella. . . Poignant.” — Culture Trip

“Easily digestible…a book that ultimately lives longer in the memory than the hour or so it takes to read.” — Financial Times

“Among many other awards, Haruki Murakami listed Mieko Kawakami as his favorite young writer, so you’re obviously going to want to snatch up Ms. Ice Sandwich, her first book translated into English. This is a lovely coming-of-age story about a boy who becomes obsessed with a woman who sells sandwiches.” — Bustle

“Reading this quirky coming of age novella was one of the best hours I’ve spent in sometime.” — The Word’s Shortlist (blog)

“Haruki Murakami’s favourite young writer. . . a funny, touching story.” — A Life in Books
