Libro adquirido: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman por Haruki Murakami

por davidgp el 12/09/2007

Hasta el momento solamente he leído novelas de Murakami. Esta es una colección de relatos escritos por él, y de lo poco que leí de la introducción que escribe el autor, parece que se enfrenta de una forma completamente diferente a la escritura de un relato corto que al de una novela. Supongo que disfrutaré de igual forma con ellos como con las novelas.

Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman

De la contraportada

‘More insights into life, death, love and kangaroos than one has a right to expect in a single volume’ Daily Express

‘An intimate pleasure’ The Times

Here are animated crows, a criminal monkey, an ice man, as well as the reams that shape us and the things we might wish for. Whether in a chance reunion in Italy, a romantic exile in Greece, a holiday in Hawaii or in the grid of everday life, Murakami’s characters confornt loss, or sexuality, or the glow of a firefly, or the impossible distance between those who ought to be closest at all.

Following the success of Kafka on the Shore comes a collection that gives full rein to Murakami’s inventive mastery. From the surreal to the mundane, these stories exhibit his ability to transform the full range of the human experience in ways that are instructive, surprising and relentlessly entertaining.

‘Funny but also sad and wise’ Sunday Telegraph

‘These stories are rich in Murakami magic… a collection that all readers will enjoy’ Independent

‘A stunning collection… simple, mysterious and true… Masterful’ Arena

‘Exhilarating’ Spectator

‘He casts a spell… his words is like no other’ Daily Mail

‘These slivers of oddity are as successful as his celebrated novels’ Time Out
