If writing novels is like planting a forest, then writing short stories is more like planting a garden." Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic. Reviews "Supremely enjoyable, philosophical and pitch-perfect new collection of short stories... Murakami has a marvellous understanding of youth and age - and the failings of each" - Observer "Murakami writes of complex things with his usual beguiling simplicity... Strangely invigorating to read... It is Murakami at his whimsical, romantic best" - Financial Times "Calculatedly provocative..., the stories offer sweet-sour meditations on human solitude and a yearning to connect... Murakami, always inventive, is one of the finest popular writers at work today" - Ian Thomson Evening Standard "Written with all the cats, spaghetti, humor, and gentle surrealism we might expect ... Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories about the lives of people trying to find their place in the world and reckoning with their pasts" - Buzzfeed About Haruki Murakami Haruki Murakami is the author of many novels as well as short stories and non-fiction.
