From the publisher

Translated by Lucy North

The startling first collection of dark, surreal, and unsettling stories from the international prize-winning author of The Woman in the Purple Skirt.

Asa tries to give her classmate a biscuit.
Nami evades her classmates' playground game of acorn-throwing.
Happy decides she's not interested in doing anything other than lying down on her sofa.

Each of these three stories begins in a reasonable place-but by the end you'll find yourself in another world altogether.
