Desire: Vintage Minis
You've just passed someone on the street who could be the love of your life, the person you're destined for - what do you do? In Murakami's world, you tell them a story. The five weird and wonderful tales collected here each unlock the many-tongued language of desire, whether it takes the form of hunger, lust, sudden infatuation or the secret longings of the heart. Selected from Haruki's Murakami's short story collections The Elephant Vanishes, Blind Willow Sleeping Woman and Men Without Women Vintage Minis: Great Minds. Big Ideas. Little Books. Also in the Vintage Minis series: Love by Jeanette Jealousy by Marcel Proust Liberty by Virginia Woolf Babies by Anne Enright.
"How does Murakami manage to make poetry while writing of contemporary life and emotions? I am weak-kneed with admiration" Independent on Sunday
