'Very powerful . . . Meticulous and extremely precise . . . Reading this book made me feel like I was in an unstable and strange world.' - Sayaka Murata 'A breathless novel that depicts with sly humor the strange relationship between two women in contemporary Japan. You too will be obsessed with the Woman in the Purple Skirt and held in suspense until the last page.' - Leila Slimani 'Imamura definitely has a rare talent for depicting people who are a little out of the ordinary. . . . By the time I got to the end, a powerful sense of the narrator's loneliness forcing its way through the madness gripped my heart.' - Yoko Ogawa 'Reading this novel, you can really hear Natsuko Imamura's unique voice, which comes across quite unsparingly and beautifully.' - Hiromi Kawakami 'Imamura offers her reader crisp, refreshing prose. The Woman in the Purple Skirt will keep you firmly in its grips with its persistent, disquieting, matter-of-fact style.' - Oyinkan Braithwaite 'A chilling tale of envy and vulnerability. Clear space on your reading list now.' - Vogue 'A voyeuristic thriller . . . This study in fascination, translated from Japanese, is as unusual as it is alluring.' - Elle 'Delightfully disturbing . . . Imamura does weird singularly well, and keeps the suspense taut throughout the novel, always teasing an answer to the questions: Why this woman? What makes her so special? What makes any of us worth watching at all?' - Refinery 29 'Disquieting and wryly funny, The Woman in the Purple Skirt is a taut and compelling depiction of loneliness and obsession.' - Paula Hawkins
