NATIONAL BESTSELLER - Including the story Drive My Car"--now an Academy Award-nominated film--this collection from the internationally acclaimed author examines what happens to characters without important women in their lives; it'll move you and confuse you and sometimes leave you with more questions than answers (Barack Obama). 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 lovesick doctors, students, ex-boyfriends, actors, bartenders, and even Kafka's Gregor Samsa, brought together to tell stories that speak to us all. In Men Without Women Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic, marked by the same wry humor and pathos that have defined his entire body of work.
