The new novel--a book that sold more than a million copies the first week it went on sale in Japan--from the internationally acclaimed author, his first since 1Q84

In high school, Tsukuru Tazaki belonged to an extremely tight-knit group of friends who pledged to stay together forever. But when Tsukuru returns home from his first year of college in Tokyo, he finds that they want nothing to do with him. Something has changed, but nobody will tell him what - and he never sees them again.

Years later, Tsukuru has become a successful engineer, but is also something of a loner. It is only when he begins dating an older woman named Sara that he confesses the story of this mysterious betrayal and the shadow it has cast over his life. She becomes convinced that Tsukuru must track down his old group to try to answer the question that has haunted him all these years, creating a hole inside of him: Why did they suddenly turn on him?

Tsukuru searches out his old friends, and as the truth reveals itself, he must confront the simmering emotional undercurrents that the group had suppressed in order to reach their ideal of perfect friendship - and in order to find himself.

the sad man loses friends and has wired sex dreams, which was cool, like the plot was good and i wanted to find out how it ended and everything. but. their's two reasons i recommend this to everyone, 1. the hardcover edition is next level beautiful 2. Murakami spits the most amazing and enthralling language, some of his simalies literally made me cry. 10/10 would read again

"A naturalistic coming-of-age story... sprinkled with strange images and written in a hauntingly mournful key" Guardian "[Murakmi's] elegant, frugal prose creates a tale of courage and hope as Tsukuru tries to unlock the secrets of his past" Stylist "A rich and even brilliant piece of work... Genuinely resonant and satisfying" -- James Walton Spectator "This is a book for both the new and experienced reader...[it] reveals another side of Murakami, one not so easy to pin down. Incurably restive, ambiguous and valiantly struggling toward a new level of maturation" -- Patti Smith New York Times "Murakami's prose seamlessly fuses folksiness and profundity... A harmonious blend of naivety and riddling sophistication'" -- Boyd Tonkin Independent

Haruki Murakami

Legend has it that on a warm day in Spring 1974 while watching a baseball game Murakami-san had the inspiration to write his first novel, later called Hear the Wind sing.

It won him his first Literary award and is part of The Trilogy of the Rat together with Pinball 1973 and A Wild Sheep Chase .

His career as an writer took off fast and a steady flow of Novels, Short Stories, Articles and Documentaries followed.

The fact that he spent a good part of his life outside Japan, mainly in the US and southern Europe, is maybe the key factor of his growing worldwide success.

The stories and settings are familiar to Westerners and yet there is a distinctive Japanese touch.
