Publisher's Summary

A dazzling new collection of short stories - the first major new work of fiction from the beloved, internationally acclaimed Haruki Murakami since his 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.

Murakami Being Murakami

A man meets his wife's lover and finds out he likes the guy. A Tokyoite teaches himself to speak with a Kansai accent. A bug turns into Gregor Samsa. People disappear. Men and women remain enigmas to each other. Sadness. Loneliness. We're in Haruki's World. There's a familiarity to all these stories, and yet, they never fail to entertain.

Murakami doesn't top himself here, but neither does he show a loss of talent. If you liked his other short stories, you'll most likely enjoy these. The converse is also true.
