Deeply philosophical and teasingly perplexing, it is impossible to put down ― Daily Telegraph
Visionary…a bold and generous book ― New York Times
Critics have variously likened him to Raymond Carver, Raymond Chandler, Arthur C. Clarke, Don DeLillo, Philip K. Dick, Bret Easton Ellis and Thomas Pynchon – a roster so ill assorted as to suggest Murakami is in fact an original ― New York Times
Murakami writes of contemporary Japan, urban alienation and journey’s of self-discovery, and in this book he combines recollections of the war with metaphysics, dreams and hallucinations into a powerful and impressionistic work ― Independent
Mesmerising, surreal, this really is the work of a true original ― The Times
About the Author
In 1978, Haruki Murakamiwas 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.
