Men Without Women: Stories

iDreamBooks' Rating: NaN% (Read Reviews)

A dazzling new collection of short stories--the first major new work of fiction from the beloved, internationally acclaimed, Haruki Murakami since his #1 best-selling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. 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 vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.From the Hardcover edition.

LA Times: Positive
For Murakami, the process of thinking is what matters, and in this collection of seven stories Murakami wants us to consider the paradoxical interrelatedness of love and loneliness, specifically, how certain men become “Men Without Women.”
NY Times: Positive
So it might also be said of this slim but beguilingly irresistible book. Like a lost lover, it holds on tight long after the affair is over.
National Post arts: Positive
His meandering, mesmerizing tales of profound alienation are driven by puzzling circumstances that neither his characters nor readers can crack – recalling existentialist Gabriel Marcel’s assertion...
