Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami
Reviewed by Heller McAlpin
Christian Science Monitor
"'Artists are those who can evade the verbose,' Haruki Murakami wrote in his last mesmerizing novel, Kafka on the Shore, a metaphysical mystery that sucks the reader into an engagingly logical yet strange dream world. Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, Murakami's first collection of short stories in more than a decade, again demonstrates his fabulous talent for transporting readers and making 'the world fade away' with a few short strokes of his pen."
