Summary Note The eight stories collected here are all told in the first person by a classic Murakami narrator, and display the author's reality-bending skills at their finest. From memories of youth, meditations on music, and an ardent love of baseball to dreamlike scenarios and imaginary jazz albums, together these tales challenge the boundaries between our minds and the exterior world. Here we encounter characters having a beer with a talking monkey, analyzing tanka poems written by a former lover, fleeing a hostile woman at a bar, or in the throes of Beatlemania. Occasionally, a narrator appears who may or may not be Murakami himself.
