Wind/Pinball

Wind/Pinball

Two Novels

Large Print - 2015
Rate this:
In the spring of 1978, a young Haruki Murakami sat down at his kitchen table and began to write. The result: two remarkable short novels-- Hear the Wind Sing  and  Pinball, 1973 --that launched the career of one of the most acclaimed authors of our time.

These powerful, at times surreal, works about two young men coming of age--the unnamed narrator and his friend the Rat--are stories of loneliness, obsession, and eroticism. They bear all the hallmarks of Murakami's later books, and form the first two-thirds, with  A Wild Sheep Chase , of the trilogy of the Rat. 

Widely available in English for the first time ever, newly translated, and featuring a new introduction by Murakami himself,  Wind/Pinball  gives us a fascinating insight into a great writer's beginnings.
