About the Author

Haruki Murakami was born in Kyoto in 1949 and now lives near Tokyo. His work has been translated into more than fifty languages, and the most recent of his many international honors is the Jerusalem Prize, whose previous recipients include J. M. Coetzee, Milan Kundera, and V. S. Naipaul.

Reviews

"Powerful. . . . Candid and often emotional." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Both a literary memorial and a frank examination of a society in search of its bearings." --A.V. Club

"Impressive." --The Independent

"Chilling. . . . Murakami weaves a compelling true tale of normal lives faced with abnormal realities." --Sunday Tribune

"Powerfully observed. . . . A rattling chronicle of violence and terror." --Kirkus Reviews

"Through Murakami's sensitive yet relentless questioning, it emerges that the people who joined Aum felt just as adrift in the world as Murakami's own [fictional] characters do." --The Guardian
