The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
I just finished rereading Murakami’s The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, which is pretty great but I don’t think matches up to some of his subsequent books. Before that was South of the Border, West of the Sun (also by Murakami), and before that was a cool little comic book called Tales of Woodsman Pete, by Lilli Carre. This morning on the train I started rereading Calvino’s Invisible Cities, which is just too good to be true. I’m hoping after that to start the Yiddish Policeman book, but who knows.
