HARUKI MURAKAMI: HIS EARLY EFFORTS

February 25, 2016 at 9:25 pm Leave a comment

This Japanese author writes the type of story I love to read.  His tales describe a mundane Japanese life, but include an element of fantasy and unreality.

I have read a great deal of his work, beginning with Kafka on the Shore, then journeying into his beyond and past works; a career with efforts I have never found disappointing.  Wind/Pinball were his first attempt at writing.  If only I could have reached this level in my first attempt, or for that matter my last.  I feel there is something that exists in writing which defies explanation.  These stories are a prime example.

Please read this work.  For if you are a first-time Murakami reader you will become addicted to his style.  If you are already an addict to his work, you will see the beginning of a voice destined for greatness.
