    Description
    A young man accompanies his cousin to the hospital to check an unusual hearing complaint and recalls a story of a woman put to sleep by tiny flies crawling inside her ear; a mirror appears out of nowhere and a nightwatchman is unnerved as his reflection tries to take control of him; a couple's relationship is unbalanced after dining exclusively on exquisite crab while on holiday; a man follows instructions on the back of a postcard to apply for a job, but an unknown password stands between him and his mysterious employer. In each one of these stories Murakami sidesteps the real and sprints for the surreal. Everyday events are transcended, leaving the reader dazzled by this master of his craft.Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman is Murakami's most eclectic collection of stories to date, spanning five years of his writing. An introduction explains the diversity of the author's choice.

    A Briiliant Collection

    Murakami's work, as always, is breathtaking and ponders one to think. This particular collection, with various characters, situations and landscapes explored, is a true delight for anyone who appreciates Murakami's fiction. Rubin and Gabriel are exquisite with the translation, and they make readers want to read Murakami in the original Japanese. "A Shinagawa Monkey", "Tony Takitani", "The Year of the Spaghetti", "Dabchick", "Birthday Girl" and "Hanalei Bay" rank with some of the ebst short st...

    Could be way better

    No complaints about the quality of the book, but the packaging was really bad. It came in just one plastic bag, and no bookmarks neither. Disappointed!

    One Star

    I got this book torned and dirty and they didn't took it back so I decided to read from that the starting of this book is extremely good but some stories are extremely borong too just a waste of time but there are few heart toughing stories as well.

You can see yourself in few of his characters. The stories are uncomplicated yet make you think. I usually start a story when I start from home and finish by the time I reach office. This book helps me ignore the immense traffic and is a great s...
