New short stories on the magazine

July 18, 2018 By mk

Just finished lunch reads of Murakami’s new short novels recently published in the magazine; “On the stone pillow”, “Cream” and “Charlie Parker plays Bossa Nova”.

Bungakukai July 2018

Although the taste of the stories is what we expect to Murakami, I saw some turnaround in his literary style and was made to feel as if I was talking with Hajime, the protagonist of South of the Border, West of the Sun, at the empty bar counter of Robin’s nest in 2018.

I am sure the stories will be translated before long and hope to share what you feel on the stories as well as those very Murakami-tasted quotes appeared plenty in the pages soon.
