Haruki Murakami was born in Kyoto in 1949 and now lives near Tokyo. His work has been translated into forty-two languages. He has received many honours, including the Franz Kafka Prize.
"It's a bizarre trip and I like it for the exact opposite reason that I like Belsky's book. That book is entirely practical in terms of life work strategies and this book is like a David Lynch film in a book." -- Pam Fujimoto * Drum * "The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami is a breath of originality. Murakami is known for his unusual blend of the mundane and the fantastical, and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle epitomises this style. This book is my favourite because it really resonated with me, the way it links together seemingly unrelated ideas into a meaningful story is incredibly unique." -- Senan Tuohy-Hamill * University Observer * "Murakami writes of contemporary Japan, urban alienation and journey's of self-discovery, and in this book he combines recollections of the war with metaphysics, dreams and hallucinations into a powerful and impressionistic work" * Independent * "Murakami weaves these textured layers of reality into a shot-silk garment of deceptive beauty" * Independent on Sunday * "Critics have variously likened him to Raymond Carver, Raymond Chandler, Arthur C. Clarke, Don DeLillo, Philip K. Dick, Bret Easton Ellis and Thomas Pynchon - a roster so ill assorted as to suggest Murakami is in fact an original" * New York Times *
