This man needs no introductions: Haruki Murakami, one of the greatest Japanese writers, is back, and he's got a brand-new collection of short, yet powerful stories that will - once again - touch the hearts and minds of millions of readers around the globe. The internationally-loved and praised author shares his own point of view on lonely men.
By using his experience, brilliant writing mind and skills acquired over the years, he wrote a total of 7 stories to tell us about something truly important, something that people need to talk about in order to understand each other better and find different ways towards happiness. This isn't a collection of sci-fi adventures or tales about maniacs with murderous tendencies. No, this is about the regular folks that are trying to find joy and meaning in their lives.
And, as always, Murakami is not shy to mix smoky bars with the Beatles, the game of baseball with disappearing cats, and, naturally, Femme Fatales of all shapes of sizes to create a unique, engaging, thought-provoking and fun message for us, the readers. This gentleman knows exactly how to reach our inner romantics and speak in a language that we can all understand.
The critics are already calling Men Without Women a modern-day classic, and, judging by the impressive sales, it's safe to say that we've got yet another bestselling "blockbuster" on our hands. Written in Murakami's trademark hilarious and exciting manner, this collection will be appreciated by folks of all ages and nationalities. Part myth, part realism, the master's latest book is a must-have for the fans of fascinating tales that are equally poignant, moving, and uplifting.
