Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all.

Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.


Another wonderful collection of short stories by Haruki Murakami. I adore Murakami's writing style, which is outwardly simplistic while portraying deep meanings. This set of seven short stories offers a diverse mix of tales, all memorable and engaging, blending drama with splashes of magical realism. If you are new to Murakami's writing, I would recommend starting with something like Kafka on the Shore. However, if you are already a fan, you will definitely want to check out Men Without Women.
