So amazing it took my breath away' Haruki Murakami, international bestselling author of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles

Breasts and Eggs explores the inner conflicts of an adolescent girl who refuses to communicate with her mother except through writing. Through the story of these women, Kawakami paints a portrait of womanhood in contemporary Japan, probing questions of gender and beauty norms and how time works on the female body.

Breast and Eggs is a thrilling English language debut from Japan's brightest young talent, Mieko Kawakami.
