His fantasies, with their easy reference to western pulp fiction and music, retain a beauty of the mind ― Guardian
A remarkable writer…he captures the common ache of contemporary heart and head — Jay McInerney
Combines a witty sci-fi pastiche and a dream-like Utopian fantasy in two separate narratives which alternate in an interweave of precognition and deja vu — Richard Lloyd Parry ― Independent
Here is abundant imagination at play ― Sunday Times
Murakami’s bold willingness to go straight-over-the-top has always been a signal indication of his genius…a powerful melange of disillusioned radicalism, keen intelligence, wicked sarcasm and a general allegiance to the surreal. If Murakami is the “voice of a generation,” as he is often proclaimed in Japan, then it is the generation of Thomas Pynchon and Don De Lillo ― Washington Post
About the Author
In 1978, Haruki Murakami was twenty-nine and running a jazz bar in downtown Tokyo. One April day, the impulse to write a novel came to him suddenly while watching a baseball game. That first novel, Hear the Wind Sing, won a new writers’ award and was published the following year. More followed, including A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, but it was Norwegian Wood, published in 1987, that turned Murakami from a writer into a phenomenon.
