Waterstones Says

Norwegian Wood author Haruki Murakami is on exceptionally fine form in this versatile collection of short stories about modern masculinity and the many faces of solitude.

I find writing novels a challenge, writing stories a joy. If writing novels is like planting a forest, then writing short stories is more like planting a garden.

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 humour that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

‘Devotees will find plenty of signature Murakami here.’ - The Guardian

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Supremely enjoyable, philosophical and pitch-perfect new collection of short stories. . . Murakami has a marvellous understanding of youth and age - and the failings of each' - Observer 

'Murakami writes of complex things with his usual beguiling simplicity. . . Strangely invigorating to read. . . It is Murakami at his whimsical, romantic best' - Financial Times

'Calculatedly provocative. . ., the stories offer sweet-sour meditations on human solitude and a yearning to connect. . . Murakami, always inventive, is one of the finest popular writers at work today' - Evening Standard 

'Written with all the cats, spaghetti, humor, and gentle surrealism we might expect . . . Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories about the lives of people trying to find their place in the world and reckoning with their pasts' - Buzzfeed 

'A disconcertingly funny portrait of modern loneliness' - Vogue

“Short stories from Murakami”

First off this is a really nice looking hardback, slim and just pleasing to look at. The stories themselves all center around men and their interactions with, or feelings about, women. Unsurprisingly. Short story... More

“Another Astonishing Book”

Murakami is my absolute favourite author of all time. I was offered a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I might be biased, as I love all of Murakami's writing, but I loved... More
