    Touching many themes in one seamless display, "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" looks at a mysteriously failed marriage, the superficiality of contemporary politics, suppressed memories of war, and a young man's search for his own and his nation's identity. With this ambitious magnum opus, Japanese writer Haruki Murakami joins Salman Rushdie, Gunter Grass, and Umberto Eco in the pantheon of international literature. Preview samplers.

It?s grand to read ... More
