    A young man accompanies his cousin to the hospital to check an unusual hearing complaint and recalls a story of a woman put to sleep by tiny flies crawling inside her ear; a mirror appears out of nowhere and a nightwatchman is unnerved as his reflection tries to take control of him; a couple's relationship is unbalanced after dining exclusively on exquisite crab while on holiday; a man follows instructions on the back of a postcard to apply for a job, but an unknown password stands between him and his mysterious employer. In each one of these stories, Murakami sidesteps the real and sprints for the surreal. Everyday events are transcended, leaving the reader dazzled by this master of his craft. "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" is Murakami's most eclectic collection of stories to date, spanning five years of his writing. An introduction explains the diversity of the author's choice.

    O avtorju

    -Haruki Murakami-

    Haruki Murakami se je rodil v Kobeju leta 1949, študiral je književnost, delal v trgovini s ploščami, med leti 1974 in 1981 pa je imel jazzovski klub v Tokiu. Murakami pogosto pripoveduje anekdoto, da se je za pisateljevanje odločil na dan, ko je na stadionu gledal bejzbolsko tekmo. In spremembe so bile radikalne: začel je pisati in hkrati tudi teči. Življenje je uravnal zelo asketsko, leta 1986 pa se je z ženo preselil v Združene države in tam živel do terorističnega napada s sarinom na Tokijski podzemni železnici, ko se je vrnil domov.

    Murakamijevi romani so si v obdobju, ko je začel teči in postajal pri tem vedno bolj vztrajen, prislužili svetovno slavo. Ljubi moj Sputnik, Južno od meje, zahodno od sonca, Norveški gozd, Kafka na obali, Divja jaga za ovco, IQ84 in drugi so bili zanimivi tudi za filmsko industrijo, predvsem pa za bralce na Zahodu, zato velja za najbolj prevajanega japonskega prozaista.
