Reviews

  • How does Murakami manage to make poetry while writing of contemporary life and emotions? I am weak-kneed with admiration

    Independent on Sunday
  • Enchanting...intriguing... All of these tales have a wonderfully surreal quality and a hip, witty tone

    Wall Street Journal
  • All the stories take place in parallel worlds not so much remote from ordinary life as hidden within its surfaces: secret alleys that afford unexpected - and unsettling - views

    New York Times
  • Like the best thriller fiction, it nags you with the sensation that Something Nasty is about to happen

    Sunday Times
  • Most collections of short stories work by the interplay of different voices. This one offers the more satisfying rewards of a novel: unity of tone and a richness of recurring detail that creates its own texture: spaghetti, lawns, hamburgers, beer-drinking, kid sisters, Sunday afternoons, a man's name
