Strange and wonderful well-written books
How should we describe these books, the kind we love to read? Often they're in translation, because the crispness of the translated word is a delicacy. Often reality is bent or suspended or turned on its ear. Let's be honest, sometimes there's loss and longing, yes it can't be denied. At the end, though, we keep the last pages hanging because we can't bear to see it go.    Print this list Print this list

I am a huge fan of Murakami, have you read his "Kafka by the Shore"?
