Pinball, 1973

Haruki Murakami

Murakami’s second novel was a direct sequel to Hear the Wind Sing and was only published in English as a Japanese language guide. I had to interlibrary loan this one from Missoula, Montana. Montana! I got a kick out of that.

Having read about this book in the lit crit book I just read, I already knew a lot of what happens in the story, in some detail in fact. But it was still a worthy read and definitely made me want to play pinball by the end.
