Convenience store woman : a novel by Sayaka Murata( Book )

28 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Keiko Furukura had always been considered a strange child, and her parents always worried how she would get on in the real world, so when she takes on a job in a convenience store while at university, they are delighted for her. For her part, in the convenience store she finds a predictable world mandated by the store manual, which dictates how the workers should act and what they should say, and she copies her coworkers' style of dress and speech patterns so that she can play the part of a normal person. However, eighteen years later, at age 36, she is still in the same job, has never had a boyfriend, and has only few friends. She feels comfortable in her life, but is aware that she is not living up to society's expectations and causing her family to worry about her. When a similarly alienated but cynical and bitter young man comes to work in the store, he will upset Keiko's contented stasis--but will it be for the better? Sayaka Murata brilliantly captures the atmosphere of the familiar convenience store that is so much part of life in Japan. With some laugh-out-loud moments prompted by the disconnect between Keiko's thoughts and those of the people around her, she provides a sharp look at Japanese society and the pressure to conform, as well as penetrating insights into the female mind. Convenience Store Woman is a fresh, charming portrait of an unforgettable heroine that recalls Banana Yoshimoto, Han Kang, and Amélie ."--

Keiko Furukawa ist anders. Gefühle sind ihr fremd, das Verhalten ihrer Mitmenschen irritiert sie meist. Um nirgendwo anzuecken, bleibt sie für sich. Als sie jedoch auf dem Rückweg von der Uni auf einen neu eröffneten Supermarkt stößt, einen sogenannten Konbini, beschließt sie, dort als Ladenhilfe anzufangen. Man bringt ihr den richtigen Gesichtsausdruck, das richtige Lächeln, die richtige Art zu sprechen bei. Keikos Welt schrumpft endlich auf ein für sie erträgliches Maß zusammen, sie verschmilzt geradezu mit den Gepflogenheiten des Konbini. Doch dann fängt Shiraba dort an, ein zynischer junger Mann, der sich sämtlichen Regeln widersetzt. Keikos mühsam aufgebautes Lebenssystem gerät ins Wanken. Und ehe sie sichs versieht, hat sie ebendiesen Mann in ihrer Badewanne sitzen. Tag und Nacht

Periodic Alternation between Intake and Exhaust of Air in Dynamic Insulation: Measurements of Heat and Moisture Recovery Efficiency( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This paper reports experimentally determined heat and moisture recovery efficiencies of a newly developed dynamic insulation system, so called a "breathing dynamic insulation". In this system, the outdoor air is drawn through half of walls made of breathable inorganic concrete (BIC), while the indoor air is exhausted through the other half. Intake and exhaust of air through the two halves of the walls are periodically alternated. It is shown that the BIC walls under study have recovery efficiencies of almost 90% for the heat in the exhaust air and 22 to 30% for the heat lost in conduction through the BIC walls within the range of an air flow rate of 10 to20 (m 3 /h)/m 2
Push-pull Mechanical Ventilation System with Heat Exchanger Controlled by Intake Air Temperature( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The purpose of this study is the development of a push-pull ventilation system, in which the air supply and exhaust amount is individually controlled by indoor and outdoor temperature difference, to maximize the ventilation performance and energy efficiency. By individually controlling the air flow rate of the supply and exhaust depending on the demand, the fan operating energy consumption is significantly reduced. High performance heat exchanger is also adopted. During non-heating period, it is possible to reduce indoor chemical contamination occurring with wall infiltration, by halving the amount of exhaust and pressurizing the room
