I’m a huge fan of Haruki Murakami, Japan’s most successful writer. His Wind up Bird Chronicle, is my all time favourite book. Murakami’s books are addictive, transporting you to another dimension and universe. They have a magical hypnotic quality, totally mesmerising you in his unique imagination. (1Q84..Book one & two sold over a million copies in it’s first month) So I was pretty excited to find these two in my friends bookshelf in Brisbane- I managed to read them in under 3 days; there wasn’t much sleep going on!
The Tassie state library has most of Murakami’s books..
