Men Without Women: Stories
|Author:||Haruki Murakami; Philip Gabriel (Translator); Ted Goossen (Translator)|
"Supremely enjoyable, philosophical and pitch-perfect new collection of short stories. . . Murakami has a marvellous understanding of youth and age - and the failings of each" * Observer * "Murakami writes of complex things with his usual beguiling simplicity. . . Strangely invigorating to read. . . It is Murakami at his whimsical, romantic best" * Financial Times * "Calculatedly provocative. . ., the stories offer sweet-sour meditations on human solitude and a yearning to connect. . . Murakami, always inventive, is one of the finest popular writers at work today" -- Ian Thomson * Evening Standard * "Written with all the cats, spaghetti, humor, and gentle surrealism we might expect . . . Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories about the lives of people trying to find their place in the world and reckoning with their pasts" * Buzzfeed * "A disconcertingly funny portrait of modern loneliness" -- Hayley Maitland * Vogue *
