Well, all you Sushi, Miso and Ramen lovers, heres a feast for your imagination. Murakami pins down those points where the everday and the fantastic collide – consequently using them to launch into virtually unputdownable philosophical, emotional and metaphysical adventures – like no other author. Well perhaps he doesn’t have much competition. It’s a very specialised discipline. But add in some exotic Japanese locales and a sense of pop culture to rival Kerouac and Hunter S, odds are you’ll soon be wishing there were a few more like him.
For those seeking blown minds I recommend: ‘The wild sheep chase’ or ‘The Hard boiled wonderland at the end of the world.’
If you want to ease in try the best selling (in Japan) Norwegian wood. Yes, like the song.
