I’m such a fan of novels, I almost never read short stories. I’ve tried, you know. Some Flannery O’Connor, even Alice Adams. I’ve read Jeanette Winterson’s short stories, of course, because I love her. And Alice Walker’s and maybe a few others. I’ve never really been that stolked about them, to be honest with you. I just love novels. Oh! And I always read the fiction from the New Yorker. Anyways, all of that is to say, to recommend, to yell from the rooftops (or just this blog!) that I love this collection of short stories and it is the best I’ve ever read in my life. Holy Cow. Murakami has done it again.
