Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Haruki Murakami, the internationally bestselling author of Norwegian Wood and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, plunges us into an urbane Japan of jazz bars, coffee shops, Jack Kerouac, and the Beatles to tell this story of a tangled triangle of uniquely unrequited loves.

A college student, identified only as K, falls in love with his classmate, Sumire. But devotion to an untidy writerly life precludes her from any personal commitments-until she meets Miu, an older and much more sophisticated businesswoman. When Sumire disappears from an island off the coast of Greece, K is solicited to join the search party and finds himself drawn back into her world and beset by ominous, haunting visions. A love story combined with a detective story, Sputnik Sweetheart ultimately lingers in the mind as a profound meditation on human longing.

Synopsis:

K, a primary school teacher, is in love with Sumire. But Sumire is in love with Miu, an older woman. Frustrated, K has an affair with the mother of one of his pupils. Then Miu calls K from a Greek island to ask for his help and soon discovers that something very strange has happened to Sumire.

Synopsis:

A triangular love story about a twenty-two year-old who falls for a woman seventeen years her senior, and her best friend K. who longs to tell her he love her. Murakami's previous novels include "Norwegian Wood" and "Underground".
