Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami

‘I find writing novels a challenge, writing stories a joy.  If writing novels is like planting a forest, then writing short stories is more like planting a garden.’

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.

Peer & Press Reviews

Written with all the cats, spaghetti, humor, and gentle surrealism we might expect…  Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories about the lives of people trying to find their place in the world and reckoning with their pasts.

Buzzfeed

Supremely enjoyable, philosophical and pitch-perfect new collection of short stories…  Murakami has a marvellous understanding of youth and age – and the failings of each.

Observer

One of the finest pieces of short-form writing I have enjoyed in many years…  If the familiar ways of Haruki Murakami are an enthusiasm, there is plenty here to divert the aficionado, but he also takes a turn into riskier territory that could well coax new readers into his distinctive world.

Keith Bruce, Herald
