This is what your heart looks like
Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on 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.
Bloggers and reviewers are saying.....
There are shades of Hemingway in these stories about men who choose loneliness in the avoidance of pain.
Time and again in these seven stories, Murakami .... manages to find a concrete image for human emotion.
This collection is a sober, clear-eyed attempt to observe the evasion and confrontation of suffering and loss, and to hope for something better.
Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories.
