BOOKS TO READ THIS MONTH
Haruki Murakami, Ted Goossen
In the spring of 1978, a young Haruki Murakami sat down at his kitchen table and began to write. The result: two remarkable short novels—Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973— that launched the career of one of the most acclaimed authors of our time. These powerful, and at times surreal, works about two young men coming of age—the unnamed narrator and his friend the Rat— are stories of loneliness, obsession, and eroticism.
