Men Without Women: Stories
Author: Haruki Murakami | Translators: Philip Gabriel and Ted Goossen | Paperback
Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are lovesick doctors, students, ex-boyfriends, actors, bartenders, and even Kafka's Gregor Samsa, brought together to tell stories that speak to us all. In Men Without Women Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic, marked by the same wry humor and pathos that have defined his entire body of work. "[A] beguilingly irresistible book.
"Like a lost lover, it holds on tight long after the affair is over." --The New York Times Book Review
"Classic Murakami. . . . [His] voice--cool, poised, witty, characterized by a peculiar blend of whimsy and poignancy, wit and profundity--hasn't lost its power to unsettle even as it amuses." --The Boston Globe
"Time and again in these seven stories, Murakami displays his singular genius." --Los Angeles Times
"Haruki Murakami's Men Without Women examines what happens to characters without important women in their lives; it'll move you and confuse you and sometimes leave you with more questions than answers." --Barack Obama
