Description
Read the haunting love story that turned Murakami into a literary superstar. When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past. 'Evocative, entertaining, sexy and funny; but then Murakami is one of the best writers around' Time Out 'Such is the exquisite, gossamer construction of Murakami's writing that everything he chooses to describe trembles with symbolic possibility' Guardian 'This book is undeniably hip, full of student uprisings, free love, booze and 1960s pop, it's also genuinely emotionally engaging, and describes the highs of adolescence as well as the lows' Independent on Sunday

The narrative unfolds as Toru grapples with the memories of Naoko, a fragile woman haunted by her past, and Midori, a spirited and unpredictable companion.

Haruki Murakami's evocative prose weaves a delicate yet powerful tale, capturing the essence of a generation navigating the complexities of societal expectations and personal desires. The novel delves into the melancholy of adolescence, the fragility of mental health, and the enduring search for connection.
