Summary

A dazzling new collection of short stories—the first major new work of fiction from the beloved, internationally acclaimed, Haruki Murakami since his #1 best-selling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.

Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all.

Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

Review Quotes

“There is a precision and care in Kirby Heyborne’s narration of this audiobook that is well suited to the collection…Heyborne skillfully manages to make each story part of the cohesive themed group and a unique snapshot of humanity. The spare, clean quality of his performance makes this collection inherently listenable for all types of audiences. His voice spans the divide between coolly aloof and warmly compassionate. The stories are deep enough to appeal to lovers of novels, but the recording will appeal to those looking for a light listen, too.”

AudioFile

“Mesmerizing tales of profound alienation…Murakami is a master of the open-ended mystery.”

Washington Post

“Time and again in these seven stories, Murakami displays his singular genius…The stories in this collection find their power within the confines of common but momentous disturbances that linger on in memory.”
