I’m biased, I admit it. But I just love Haruki Murakami. His collection of short stories – “Men Without Women” – are typically him: whimsical, slightly weird, about love, relationships, loneliness. They are subtle stories too. Often Murakami explores what it is like to be human – specifically to be a man – by putting his characters into unusual situations.
If you were looking for an introduction into Murakami to find out whether his style of story-telling was for you, then this could be the one!
Tell me which story you liked best, and I’ll tell you what to read next. I’ve read them all!
