Book Summary:

The long-awaited magnum opus from Haruki Murakami, in which this revered and bestselling author gives us his hypnotically addictive, mind-bending ode to George Orwell's 1984. The year is 1984. Aomame is riding in a taxi on the expressway, in a hurry to carry out an assignment. Her work is not the kind that can be discussed in public. When they get tied up in traffic, the taxi driver suggests a bizarre 'proposal' to her. Having no other choice she agrees, but as a result of her actions she starts to feel as though she is gradually becoming detached from the real world. She has been on a top secret mission, and her next job leads her to encounter the superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange disturbance that develops over a literary prize. While Aomame and Tengo impact on each other in various ways, at times by accident and at times intentionally, they come closer and closer to meeting. Eventually the two of them notice that they are indispensable to each other. Is it possible for them to ever meet in the real world?

Book Summary:

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the greatest modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions. “Murakami’s bold willingness to go straight over the top is a signal indication of his genius. . . . A world-class writer who has both eyes open and takes big risks.” —The Washington Post Book World Not since Yukio Mishima and Yasunari Kawabata has a Japanese writer won the international acclaim enjoyed by Haruki Murakami. His genre-busting novels, short stories and reportage, which have been translated into 35 languages, meld the surreal and the hard-boiled, deadpan comedy and delicate introspection. Vintage Murakami includes the opening chapter of the international bestseller Norwegian Wood; “Lieutenant Mamiya’s Long Story: Parts I and II” from his monumental novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle; “Shizuko Akashi” from Underground, his non-fiction book on the Toyko subway attack of 1995; and the short stories “Barn Burning,” “Honeypie.” Also included, for the first time in book form, the short story, “Ice Man.”

Book Summary:

När Aomames taxi fastnar i Tokyos rusningstrafik får hon av chauffören rådet att kliva ur och följa en trappa ned från motorvägen. Hon gör som han säger, och i ett slag är hela hennes tillvaro förändrad. Snart inser hon att hon måste ha förflyttats till en annan verklighet till 1Q84 års värld. Tengo drömmer om att lyckas som författare. I väntan på sitt eget genombrott får han ett märkligt uppdrag: att hjälpa en sjuttonårig flicka med att sammanställa ett manus till en litterär tävling. Han blir alltmer indragen i arbetet med romanen, och omständigheterna omkring dess innehåll och den unga författaren är minst sagt förbryllande. Livet i 1Q84 års värld innebär valsituationer och beslut som Aomame helst skulle slippa, och hon ställs inför ett uppdrag som kommer att kräva mer av henne än något annat hon tidigare gjort. Utan att veta om det börjar hon och Tengo att närma sig varandra, men frågan är om det är möjligt för dem att mötas. Kanske är det kärlek, kanske är det något mycket mer komplicerat än så. 1Q84 Är Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning hittills. Den utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Romansviten omgav av stort hemlighetsmakeri när den kom ut och har slagit alla försäljningsrekord i Japan. Denna utgåva innehåller romansvitens alla tre delar och finns endast som e-bok. Haruki Murakami, född 1949 i Kyoto, är en av dagens mest omtalade och hyllade författare. Genom att förena popkultur med en egensinnig magisk realism har han med sina romaner och novellsamlingar väckt stor uppmärksamhet och fått hängivna läsare världen över.

Book Summary:

1Q84. Tredje boken är fortsättningen på Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin. Den utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Oktober-december 1984. Ushikawa är en erfaren och nitisk utredare som med sitt tålamod och rationella tillvägagångssätt kan spåra nästan vem som helst. När han får i uppdrag att leta rätt på den försvunna Aomame går han sin egen väg och blir allt djupare indragen i den egensinniga och oförutsägbara värld som är 1Q84. Under tiden dras Tengo och Aomame genom osynliga trådar allt närmare varandra, utan att riktigt förstå vad det är som pågår. De två månarna på himlen utövar ett starkt inflytande över dem och tycks styra deras tankar och rörelser. Den magiska men kortvariga beröring de en gång upplevde som barn är efter tjugo år på väg att utveckla ett alldeles eget liv. Murakami blandar Raymond Chandler med Kafka och Alice i Underlandet till någonting helt annorlunda som förnyar romankonsten liksom hos Thomas Pynchon och Don DeLillo fast kanske ännu mer egensinnigt än så. Man får hoppas att han inte anses vara för lekfull för att få Nobelpriset. Johan Dahlbäck, GP

Book Summary:

Kan vi verkligen säga att världen existerar så som vi uppfattar den? Hur är världen egentligen skapad? Hur samverkar det som nu existerar med det förflutna? Och hur påverkar nuet framtiden? Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Aomame åker på motorvägen i en taxi. Hon har bråttom men fastnar i trafiken. Eftersom hon är försenad till ett viktigt och hemligt arbetsmöte får hon ett märkligt förslag av chauffören: att ta en trappa som leder ner från motorvägsbron. Hon tackar ja och kort därefter börjar hon känna sig frånkopplad världen utanför. I ett slag är hela hennes tillvaro förändrad och hon står snart inför grundaren av en religiös sekt. Tengo är en ung man som vill uppfylla sin dröm om att bli författare. En vän till honom, som knappast är en särskilt begåvad författare, börjar allt mer att styra hans liv när hon bestämmer sig för att ställa upp i en litterär tävling. Till Tengo påstår hon att den bygger på egna erfarenheter, ändå tycks ingenting stämma. Plötsligt är det som om någon drar undan mattan för det han alltid tagit för givet är sanning. På olika sätt möts Aomame och Tengo och de börjar sakta närma sig varandra. Det är som om de vore beroende av varandra. Men frågan är om det är möjligt för dem att någonsin mötas i den verkliga världen som de tror sig leva i. Kanske är det kärlek, eller så är det något som är mycket mer komplicerat än så. Det här är andra delen i trilogin 1Q84.

Book Summary:

Quantum Theory is the most revolutionary discovery in physics since Newton. This book gives a lucid, exciting, and accessible account of the surprising and counterintuitive ideas that shape our understanding of the sub-atomic world. It does not disguise the problems of interpretation that still remain unsettled 75 years after the initial discoveries. The main text makes no use of equations, but there is a Mathematical Appendix for those desiring stronger fare. Uncertainty, probabilistic physics, complementarity, the problematic character of measurement, and decoherence are among the many topics discussed.

These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly.

Book Summary:

A short, sleek novel of encounters set in the witching hours of Tokyo between midnight and dawn, and every bit as gripping as Haruki Murakami’s masterworks The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. At its center are two sisters: Yuri, a fashion model sleeping her way into oblivion; and Mari, a young student soon led from solitary reading at an anonymous Denny’s into lives radically alien to her own: those of a jazz trombonist who claims they’ve met before; a burly female “love hotel” manager and her maidstaff; and a Chinese prostitute savagely brutalized by a businessman. These “night people” are haunted by secrets and needs that draw them together more powerfully than the differing circumstances that might keep them apart, and it soon becomes clear that Yuri’s slumber–mysteriously tied to the businessman plagued by the mark of his crime – will either restore or annihilate her. After Dark moves from mesmerizing drama to metaphysical speculation, interweaving time and space as well as memory and perspective into a seamless exploration of human agency – the interplay between self-expression and understanding, between the power of observation and the scope of compassion and love. Murakami’s trademark humor, psychological insight, and grasp of spirit and morality are here distilled with an extraordinary, harmonious mastery. “Eyes mark the shape of the city. Through the eyes of a high-flying night bird, we take in the scene from midair. In our broad sweep, the city looks like a single gigantic creature–or more, like a single collective entity created by many intertwining organisms. Countless arteries stretch to the ends of its elusive body, circulating a continuous supply of fresh blood cells, sending out new data and collecting the old, sending out new consumables and collecting the old, sending out new contradictions and collecting the old. To the rhythm of its pulsing, all parts of the body flicker and flare up and squirm. Midnight is approaching, and while the peak of activity has indeed passed, the basal metabolism that maintains life continues undiminished, producing the basso continuo of the city’s moan, a monotonous sound that neither rises nor falls but is pregnant with foreboding.” —from After Dark

Book Summary:

The long-awaited second novel by the author of “arguably the most exciting debut novel of the decade: The Last Samurai.” (Sam Anderson, New York). “All I want is to be a success. That’s all I ask.” Joe fails to sell a single set of the Encyclopedia Britannica in six months. Then fails to sell a single Electrolux and must eat 126 pieces of homemade pie, served up by his would-be customers who feel sorry for him. Holed up in his trailer, Joe finds an outlet for his frustrations in a series of ingenious sexual fantasies, and at last strikes gold. His brainstorm, Lightning Rods, Inc., will take Joe to the very top — and to the very heart of corporate insanity — with an outrageous solution to the spectre of sexual harassment in the modern office. An uproarious, hard-boiled modern fable of corporate life, sex, and race in America, Helen DeWitt’s Lightning Rods brims with the satiric energy of Nathanael West and the philosophic import of an Aristophanic comedy of ideas. Her wild yarn is second cousin to the spirit of Mel Brooks and the hilarious reality-blurring of Being John Malkovich. Dewitt continues to take the novel into new realms of storytelling — as the timeliness of Lightning Rods crosses over into timelessness.

Sarah Gailey's The Echo Wife is “a trippy domestic thriller which takes the extramarital affair trope in some intriguingly weird new directions.”--Entertainment Weekly I’m embarrassed, still, by how long it took me to notice. Everything was right there in the open, right there in front of me, but it still took me so long to see the person I had married. It took me so long to hate him. Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient. She’s everything Evelyn swore she’d never be. And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband. Now, the cheating bastard is dead, and both Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up. Good thing Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty.

Book Summary:

Haruki Murakami, a global literary phenomenon, has said that he started writing fiction as a means of self-therapy. What he has not discussed as much is what he needed self-therapy for. This book argues that by understanding more about why Murakami writes, and by linking this with the question of how he writes, readers can better understand what he writes. Murakami's fiction, in other words, can be read as a search for self-therapy. In five chapters which explore Murakami's fourteen novels to date, this book argues that there are four prominent therapeutic threads woven through Murakami's fiction that can be traced back to his personal traumas - most notably Murakami's falling out with his late father and the death of a former girlfriend – and which have also transcended them in significant ways as they have been transformed into literary fiction. The first thread looks at the way melancholia must be worked through for mourning to occur and healing to happen; the second thread looks at how symbolic acts of sacrifice can help to heal intergenerational trauma; the third thread looks at the way people with avoidant attachment styles can begin to open themselves up to love again; the fourth thread looks at how individuation can manifest as a response to nihilism. Meticulously researched and written with sensitivity, the result is a sophisticated exploration of Murakami's published novels as an evolving therapeutic project that will be of great value to all scholars of Japanese literature and culture.

Book Summary:

A SPECTATOR AND EVENING STANDARD BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020 'A joy. Each chapter instantly became my favourite' David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas 'Wonderful' Lucy Mangan 'The right book has a neverendingness, and so does the right bookshop.' This is the story of our love affair with books, whether we arrange them on our shelves, inhale their smell, scrawl in their margins or just curl up with them in bed. Taking us on a journey through comfort reads, street book stalls, mythical libraries, itinerant pedlars, radical pamphleteers, extraordinary bookshop customers and fanatical collectors, Canterbury bookseller Martin Latham uncovers the curious history of our book obsession - and his own. Part cultural history, part literary love letter and part reluctant memoir, this is the tale of one bookseller and many, many books. 'If ferreting through bookshops is your idea of heaven, you'll get the same pleasure from this treasure trove of a book' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

Book Summary:

Winner of Japan's Grand Prix for Crime Fiction • Edgar Award Finalist • Nothing in Japanese literature prepares us for the stark, tension-filled, plot-driven realism of Natsuo Kirino’s award-winning literary mystery Out. This mesmerizing novel tells the story of a brutal murder in the staid Tokyo suburbs, as a young mother who works the night shift making boxed lunches strangles her abusive husband and then seeks the help of her coworkers to dispose of the body and cover up her crime. The coolly intelligent Masako emerges as the plot’s ringleader, but quickly discovers that this killing is merely the beginning, as it leads to a terrifying foray into the violent underbelly of Japanese society. At once a masterpiece of literary suspense and pitch-black comedy of gender warfare, Out is also a moving evocation of the pressures and prejudices that drive women to extreme deeds, and the friendships that bolster them in the aftermath.

Book Summary:

A shape-shifter arrives at Tokyo harbour in human form, set to embark on an unstoppable rampage through the city’s train network… A young woman is accompanied home one night by a reclusive student, and finds herself lured into a flat full of eerie Egyptian artefacts… A man suspects his young wife’s obsession with picnicking every weekend in the city’s parks hides a darker motive… At first, Tokyo appears in these stories as it does to many outsiders: a city of bewildering scale, awe-inspiring modernity, peculiar rules, unknowable secrets and, to some extent, danger. Characters observe their fellow citizens from afar, hesitant to stray from their daily routines to engage with them. But Tokyo being the city it is, random encounters inevitably take place – a naïve book collector, mistaken for a French speaker, is drawn into a world he never knew existed; a woman seeking psychiatric help finds herself in a taxi with an older man wanting to share his own peculiar revelations; a depressed divorcee accepts an unexpected lunch invitation to try Thai food for the very first time… The result in each story is a small but crucial change in perspective, a sampling of the unexpected yet simple pleasure of other people’s company. As one character puts it, ‘The world is full of delicious things, you know.’

The Future of the World

Book Summary:

Kriner tells the story of how readers participate in the future of the word, the eschatology of texts. If texts have a future in the kingdom of God, then readers’ engagements with them—everything from preservation and utterance to translation, criticism, and call and response—can cultivate those futures in the love of the Trinity. Kriner explores how the fallenness and failures of texts, alongside readers’ own failures, ultimately point to reading as a posture of reconciliation, in which reader and text meet in the Maranatha of all text.

A History of European Literature

Book Summary:

Walter Cohen argues that the history of European literature and each of its standard periods can be illuminated by comparative consideration of the different literary languages within Europe and by the ties of European literature to world literature. World literature is marked by recurrent, systematic features, outcomes of the way that language and literature are at once the products of major change and its agents. Cohen tracks these features from ancient times to the present, distinguishing five main overlapping stages. Within that framework, he shows that European literatures ongoing internal and external relationships are most visible at the level of form rather than of thematic statement or mimetic representation. European literature emerges from world literature before the birth of Europe — during antiquity, whose Classical languages are the heirs to the complex heritage of Afro-Eurasia. This legacy is later transmitted by Latin to the various vernaculars. The uniqueness of the process lies in the gradual displacement of the learned language by the vernacular, long dominated by Romance literatures. That development subsequently informs the second crucial differentiating dimension of European literature: the multicontinental expansion of its languages and characteristic genres, especially the novel, beginning in the Renaissance. This expansion ultimately results in the reintegration of European literature into world literature and thus in the creation of todays global literary system. The distinctiveness of European literature is to be found in these interrelated trajectories.

Book Summary:

O Livro 3 revela o estilo forte e truculento de uma personagem única, Ushikawa de seu nome. A par de Tengo e Aomame, a voz da Ushikawa ecoa nas páginas do terceiro volume de 1Q84 e provoca as reações mais intensas. Amem-no ou detestem-no, mas deixem-no entregue à sua sorte. Tengo e Aomame continuam sem saber, mas aquele é o único lugar perfeito no mundo. Um lugar perfeitamente isolado e, ao mesmo tempo, o único que escapa às malhas da solidão. Este mundo também deverá ter as suas ameaças, os seus perigos, claro, e estar cheio dos seus próprios enigmas e de contradições. Mas não faz mal. A páginas tantas, é preciso acreditar. Sob as duas luas de 1Q84, Aomame e Tengo deixam de estar sozinhos... Inspirado em parte no romance 1984, de George Orwell, 1Q84 é uma surpreendente obra de ficção, escrita de forma poderosa e imaginativa - a um tempo um thriller e uma tocante história de amor. Murakami continua a provocar o espanto e a emoção, comunicando com milhões de pessoas de todas as idades, espalhadas pelo mundo inteiro. Ao pousar este livro, quantos leitores não se sentirão desafiados a ver o mundo com outros olhos?
