A mystery story about love, the cosmos and other fictional universes

Medlemsvurdering:
Okay, pay close attention; this is a book about a boy who's in love with a girl, who in turn is in love with a woman who lost half of herself when witnessing herself having sex while being trapped in a Ferris wheel, thus loosing all ability to really love anyone ever. Yes, Murakami is one surreal bastard. But he's also one hell of a storyteller, following in the Kafkaesque tradition of putting dopey characters in a world they can't control, and thus portraying both psychological dystopia and modern-day existential angst. Sputnik Sweetheart is no exception; inhabited by loveable, highly introspective (and therefore rewarding) characters, and with a plotline that will mystify and excite all lovers of awesome contemporary writing. Murakami is a master storyteller, and Sputnik Sweetheart is very good proof of this.

Om forfatteren

In 1978, Haruki Murakami was twenty-nine and running a jazz bar in downtown Tokyo. One April day, the impulse to write a novel came to him suddenly while watching a baseball game. That first novel, Hear the Wind Sing, won a new writers' award and was published the following year. More followed, including A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, but it was Norwegian Wood, published in 1987, that turned Murakami from a writer into a phenomenon.

In works such as The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, 1Q84, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running and Men Without Women, Murakami's distinctive blend of the mysterious and the everyday, of melancholy and humour, continues to enchant readers, ensuring his place as one of the world's most acclaimed and well-loved writers.
