Adam’s Rib

Men Without Women by Haruki Murakami is an intriguing short story collection. Translated from the original Japanese, the stories are deep and emotional.

As a female reader, I am often clueless perhaps of male thought processes. These stories were enlightening. One is about a recently divorced man, another about an apparent agoraphobic, a third about a man with mental problems, and there are more just as off-beat. All contain clearly defined characters with vivid scenarios highlighting the human condition.

I think the author and his stories are amazing. I intend to read more of Murakami’s books. This is one I highly recommend.
