Editorial Reviews

"Remarkable evocations of a postmodernist world, superficially indifferent but transformed by Murakami's talent into a place suffused with a yearning for meaning." - Kirkus Reviews

"A little deepening of his subjects, a little further penetration of his own already wise heart, and Murakami can take his place alongside the handful of the world’s true artists." - Booklist Online

"In both his playful throwaway sketches and his darkly comic masterpieces, Murakami has proven himself a virtuoso with a fertile imagination." - Publishers Weekly
