samskivert: Norwegian Wood – Haruki Murakami (4)

16 March 2003

A wistful tale made all the more poignant by Murakami’s even-handed style. Murakami paints a picture of life in the sixties — albeit in Japan — that’s mundane and yet every bit as alluring as the lyrical ramblings of Kerouac and the kinetic craziness of Kesey.
