Review

"A deeply troubling yet poetically beautiful story" Marie Claire "Evocative, entertaining, sexy and funny; but then Murakami is one of the best writers around" Time Out "Such is the exquisite, gossamer construction of Murakami's writing that everything he chooses to describe trembles with symbolic possibility" Guardian "This book is undeniably hip, full of student uprisings, free love, booze and 1960s pop, it's also genuinely emotionally engaging, and describes the highs of adolescence as well as the lows" Independent on Sunday "Catches the absorption and giddy rush of adolescent love... It is also, for all the tragic momentum and the apparently kamikaze consciousness of many of its characters, often funny and quirkily observed." Times Literary Supplement
