Men Without Women

41CZGJ-FDPL._SX348_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

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… More at Amazon.

Looks really interesting, but no Kindle version?

UPDATE: UK Kindle link. Thanks to David.

  1. For better or (for UK folks, I’m guessing) worse I was able to order a Kindle version from the US Amazon.

    Love the author, and love short stories (I’ve had 1Q84 on my ipad forever, but its length is daunting… since I love ideas and concepts more than plot and character development, short stories are a nicer medium for me)

  2. I just started reading this, one of the few paper books I read nowadays. Good so far – Shaun, I can send you my paper copy when I finish if you want… 🙂 Am I allowed to do that? Obviously not allowed to send you the e-book. How do copyright rules work for paper copies that I’ve bought compared to e-book?

    Anyway, 1q84 was daunting to begin – I got the paper copy – but flew by once I’d got into it.
