Breathtaking - Haruki Murakami, author of The Wind-up Bird Chronicle

On a hot summers day in a poor suburb of Tokyo we meet three women: thirty-year-old Natsu, her older sister Makiko, and Makikos teenage daughter Midoriko. Makiko, an ageing hostess despairing the loss of her looks, has travelled to Tokyo in search of breast enhancement surgery. Shes accompanied by Midoriko, who has recently stopped speaking, finding herself unable to deal with her own changing body and her mothers self-obsession. Her silence dominates Natsus rundown apartment, providing a catalyst for each woman to grapple with their own anxieties and their relationships with one another.

Eight years later, we meet Natsu again. She is now a writer and find herself on a journey back to her native city, returning to memories of that summer and her familys past as she faces her own uncertain future.

In Breasts and Eggs Mieko Kawakami paints a radical and intimate portrait of contemporary working class womanhood in Japan, recounting the heartbreaking journeys of three women in a society where the odds are stacked against them. This is an unforgettable full length English language debut from a major new international talent.
