Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The major new work of fiction from the internationally acclaimed, #1 NYT bestselling author--a dazzling collection of short stories.

The much-anticipated new short story collection from the beloved Haruki Murakami--his first major new work of fiction since the #1 New York Times bestselling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage--Men Without Women showcases the author at the peak of his powers. Across seven tales, Murakami draws his piercing observation to 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 Haruki Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.
Review Quote*Praise for Haruki Murakami:

 • "Murakami is masterful." --Los Angeles Times
 • "It's hard to think of another writer who is as popular, as strange and as lionized as Haruki Murakami is." --Meg Wolitzer, NPR
 • "A genius." --Chicago Tribune
 • "Reading Murakami . . . is a striking experience in consciousness expansion." --Chicago Tribune
 • "Murakami [is] some kind of wizard." --New York Magazine
