Life ceremony

From the author of international bestseller Convenience Store Woman comes a collection of weird, out of this world short fiction. An engaged couple falls out over the husband’s dislike of clothes and objects made from human materials; a young girl finds herself deeply enamoured with the curtain in her childhood bedroom; people honour their dead by eating them and then procreating. Published in English for the first time, this edition also includes the story that first brought Sayaka Murata international acclaim: ‘A Clean Marriage’, which tells the story of a happily asexual couple who must submit to some radical medical procedures if they are to conceive a child. Mixing taboo-breaking body horror with feminist revenge fables, Life Ceremony is a wild ride to the outer edges of one of the most original minds in contemporary fiction.
