Murakami's fictional world has been called beautiful, bizarre and endlessly beguiling - now you can inhabit it all year roundAbout the Author:
Haruki Murakami was born in Kyoto in 1949. Following the publication of his first novel in Japanese in 1979, he sold the jazz bar he ran with his wife and became a full-time writer. It was with the publication of Norwegian Wood -- which has to date sold more than 4 million copies in Japan alone -- that the author was truly catapulted into the limelight. Known for his surrealistic world of mysterious (and often disappearing) women, cats, earlobes, wells, Western culture, music and quirky first-person narratives, he is now Japan's best-known novelist abroad. Nine novels, three short story collections and one work of non-fiction are currently available in English translation.
