Men Without Women: Stories
A new Murakami is always big news. In his new short story collection, he examines the lives of seven middle-aged men who, for various reasons, have found themselves living alone. The title is a nod to Hemingway; two chapter titles are borrowed from The Beatles. Publication date: May 9, 2017
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.
