She waited on tables as usual that day, her twentieth birthday. She always worked Fridays, but if things had gone according to plan on that particular Friday, she would have had the night off.

One rainy Tokyo night, a waitress's uneventful twentieth birthday takes a strange and fateful turn when she's asked to deliver dinner to the restaurant's reclusive owner. Birthday Girl is a beguiling, exquisitely satisfying taste of master storytelling, published to celebrate Murakami's 70th birthday.

Birthday Girl is also available in Birthday Stories and Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A subtle story that leaves readers analysing every moment... It's undoubtedly a story you can read again and again and derive a different interpretation with each new reading, which just goes to show why it's still being published and talked about nearly 20 years after it was first published * Culturefly *

“Brilliant as always”

"No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves."

A sweet and teeny story where nothing is as it seems, and all questions go unanswered.

This is a short story about a waitress who has to serve dinner to the reclusive owner of the restaurant where she works and was written to celebrate Murakami’s 70th birthday.
