Check Out Haruki Murakami’s Latest Story in The New Yorker!

Samsa-in-Love--Haruki-Murakami-New-YorkerHaruki Murakami, the extraordinary Japanese author of Norwegian Wood, Kafka on the Shore, and 1Q84 has once again scoffed in the face of genre distinctions! This week The New Yorker published “Samsa in Love,” in which our narrator wakes to find himself transformed into one Gregor Samsa, childlike resident of Prague. Having conquered the new sensations of hunger and cold, he embarks on an entirely new adventure when a locksmith comes to his door. Read the whole story here, before it scuttles behind a paywall, and check out this lovely illustration by Javier Jaén!

I must say I love Murakami's very surreal stories. I thought 19Q4 was very well crafted. You didn't have to know Japanese Culture to understand it. It was very human.
