A poignant story of one college student's romantic coming-of-age, Norwegian Wood takes us to that distant place of a young man's first, hopeless, and heroic love.

Editorial Reviews

"Another solid building-block in one of contemporary fiction’s most energetic and impressive bodies of work." - Kirkus (starred review)

"This is a quiet novel about very unquiet emotions; it lacks the histrionics one expects from young people in pain, but somehow that stillness makes the pain all the more intense." - Booklist

"Murakami tells a subtle, charming, profound and very sexy story of young love bound for tragedy." -- Publishers Weekly
