"Delightful… Kawakami’s dialogue, fluidly rendered into English by Louise Heal Kawai, captures beautifully and with great humor the eager dynamism of a child’s mind." — World Literature Today

"A subtle and endearing novella with a sweet sense of humor. Kawakami touches on loss, societal perceptions, first loves and new beginnings through the eyes of a grade-school boy and his relationships with the women closest to him." --Sara S., Vroman’s Bookstores

"A touching novella. . . Poignant." — Culture Trip

"Easily digestible…a book that ultimately lives longer in the memory than the hour or so it takes to read." — Financial Times

"Among many other awards, Haruki Murakami listed Mieko Kawakami as his favorite young writer, so you're obviously going to want to snatch up Ms. Ice Sandwich, her first book translated into English. This is a lovely coming-of-age story about a boy who becomes obsessed with a woman who sells sandwiches." — Bustle

"In Louise Heal Kawai’s translation, the novella is a wonderful example of the power of narrative voice." — Japan Times

"Reading this quirky coming of age novella was one of the best hours I've spent in sometime." — The Word’s Shortlist (blog)

"Haruki Murakami’s favourite young writer. . . a funny, touching story." — A Life in Books
