Book Excerpt :

The long-awaited magnum opus from Haruki Murakami, in which this revered and bestselling author gives us his hypnotically addictive, mind-bending ode to George Orwell's 1984. The year is 1984. Aomame is riding in a taxi on the expressway, in a hurry to carry out an assignment. Her work is not the kind that can be discussed in public. When they get tied up in traffic, the taxi driver suggests a bizarre 'proposal' to her. Having no other choice she agrees, but as a result of her actions she starts to feel as though she is gradually becoming detached from the real world. She has been on a top secret mission, and her next job leads her to encounter the superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange disturbance that develops over a literary prize. While Aomame and Tengo impact on each other in various ways, at times by accident and at times intentionally, they come closer and closer to meeting. Eventually the two of them notice that they are indispensable to each other. Is it possible for them to ever meet in the real world?

Book Short Summary:

A SPECTATOR AND EVENING STANDARD BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020 'A joy. Each chapter instantly became my favourite' David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas 'Wonderful' Lucy Mangan 'The right book has a neverendingness, and so does the right bookshop.' This is the story of our love affair with books, whether we arrange them on our shelves, inhale their smell, scrawl in their margins or just curl up with them in bed. Taking us on a journey through comfort reads, street book stalls, mythical libraries, itinerant pedlars, radical pamphleteers, extraordinary bookshop customers and fanatical collectors, Canterbury bookseller Martin Latham uncovers the curious history of our book obsession - and his own. Part cultural history, part literary love letter and part reluctant memoir, this is the tale of one bookseller and many, many books. 'If ferreting through bookshops is your idea of heaven, you'll get the same pleasure from this treasure trove of a book' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

Book Short Summary:

O Livro 1 revelou a existência do mundo de 1Q84. Algumas perguntas encontraram resposta. Outras permanecem em aberto: Quem é o Povo Pequeno? Como farão esses seres para abrir caminho até ao mundo real? Existirão mesmo?, como sugere Fuka-Eri. Chegarão Aomame e Tengos a reencontrar-se? «Há coisas neste mundo que é melhor nem saber», como diz o sinistro Ushikawa. Em todo o caso, o destino dos heróis de 1Q84 está em marcha. No céu, distinguem-se nitidamente duas luas. Não é uma ilusão. Murakami descreve aqui um universo singular, que absorve, que imita a realidade, e a faz sua. A narrativa decorre em dois mundos que se cruzam, qual deles o mais real e o mais fascinante - o de 1984 e o de 1Q84. A perturbante história de um amor adiado, recortada num cenário marcado pelo desencanto e pela violência. Uma fábula sobre os dilemas do mundo contemporâneo. Murakami retrata o mal-estar da sociedade japonesa que se esconde por debaixo de uma aparente quietude.

Book Short Summary:

Endlich: Aomame und Tengo finden sich Als Tengo seinen komatösen Vater im Krankenhaus besuchen will, findet er in dessen Krankenbett eine ›Puppe aus Luft‹ vor, die ein Abbild Aomames als junges Mädchen in sich birgt. Er greift nach ihrer Hand, und eine unsichtbare Verbindung entsteht. Fortan wartet Tengo darauf, der Puppe nochmals zu begegnen, doch vergebens. War das Signal nicht stark genug, um die zwischen Leben und Tod schwankende Aomame zu retten? Unterdessen setzt die gefährliche Sekte alles daran, um den Mord an ihrem ›Leader‹ aufzuklären. Aomames Spur wird von einem so unheimlichen wie unangenehmen Agenten aufgenommen. Er ermittelt mit tödlicher Präzision, doch schließlich bringt er mehr in Erfahrung, als gut für ihn ist ... Im dritten Teil des Epos beweist Murakami erneut aufs Eindrucksvollste, dass sich die Schraube des gnadenlos packenden Erzählens immer noch etwas weiter drehen lässt. Auch die jüngste Episode seines größten Werks wird Sie mit dem Wunsch zurücklassen, diese unfassbare Geschichte möge niemals enden.

Book Short Summary:

Oktober – December 1984 "Noget sparkede i det yderste af hans bevidsthed. Og når noget sparkede i det yderste af hans bevidsthed, var han nødt til at finde ud af, hvad det var." I allerførste kapitel af denne tredje og afsluttende bog i Haruki Murakamis romanværk '1Q84' møder vi den umanerligt grimme og meget insisterende privatdetektiv Hr. Ushikawa. Hans næse har aldrig fejlet noget, og når først han er på sporet, finder han altid frem til sit bytte. Men da han er en slange, må han gøre det i sit eget tempo. De to andre hovedpersoner i dette store værk, Tengo, en ensom mand med forfatterdrømme, og Aomame, en ung kvinde på en livsfarlig mission, befinder sig meget langt fra hinanden. De er begge to truet af kræfter, de ikke forstår omfanget af, og de er begge to forfulgt af mennesker, de ikke kender. Mens de leder efter hinanden fra hver sit sted, lærer de mere og mere om den forskudte verden, de er forsvundet ind i, men vil de lære nok til at overliste deres forfølgere? Og vil de finde hinanden, før det er for sent. '1Q84' udspiller sig i løbet af skæbneåret 1984. Og hvis vi troede, at menneskeheden var kommet helskindet gennem dette skelsættende Orwell-år, så må vi tro om igen.

Sarah Gailey's The Echo Wife is “a trippy domestic thriller which takes the extramarital affair trope in some intriguingly weird new directions.”--Entertainment Weekly I’m embarrassed, still, by how long it took me to notice. Everything was right there in the open, right there in front of me, but it still took me so long to see the person I had married. It took me so long to hate him. Martine is a genetically cloned replica made from Evelyn Caldwell’s award-winning research. She’s patient and gentle and obedient. She’s everything Evelyn swore she’d never be. And she’s having an affair with Evelyn’s husband. Now, the cheating bastard is dead, and both Caldwell wives have a mess to clean up. Good thing Evelyn Caldwell is used to getting her hands dirty.

Book Short Summary:

1Q84. Tredje boken är fortsättningen på Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin. Den utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Oktober-december 1984. Ushikawa är en erfaren och nitisk utredare som med sitt tålamod och rationella tillvägagångssätt kan spåra nästan vem som helst. När han får i uppdrag att leta rätt på den försvunna Aomame går han sin egen väg och blir allt djupare indragen i den egensinniga och oförutsägbara värld som är 1Q84. Under tiden dras Tengo och Aomame genom osynliga trådar allt närmare varandra, utan att riktigt förstå vad det är som pågår. De två månarna på himlen utövar ett starkt inflytande över dem och tycks styra deras tankar och rörelser. Den magiska men kortvariga beröring de en gång upplevde som barn är efter tjugo år på väg att utveckla ett alldeles eget liv. Murakami blandar Raymond Chandler med Kafka och Alice i Underlandet till någonting helt annorlunda som förnyar romankonsten liksom hos Thomas Pynchon och Don DeLillo fast kanske ännu mer egensinnigt än så. Man får hoppas att han inte anses vara för lekfull för att få Nobelpriset. Johan Dahlbäck, GP

Book Short Summary:

A deeply personal, intimate conversation about music and writing between the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author and his close friend, the former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Haruki Murakami's passion for music runs deep. Before turning his hand to writing, he ran a jazz club in Tokyo, and from The Beatles' "Norwegian Wood" to Franz Liszt's "Years of Pilgrimage," the aesthetic and emotional power of music permeates every one of his much-loved books. Now, in Absolutely on Music, Murakami fulfills a personal dream, sitting down with his friend, acclaimed conductor Seiji Ozawa, to talk, over a period of two years, about their shared interest. Transcribed from lengthy conversations about the nature of music and writing, here they discuss everything from Brahms to Beethoven, from Leonard Bernstein to Glenn Gould, from record collecting to pop-up orchestras, and much more. Ultimately this book gives readers an unprecedented glimpse into the minds of the two maestros. It is essential reading for book and music lovers everywhere.

Book Short Summary:

The long-awaited second novel by the author of “arguably the most exciting debut novel of the decade: The Last Samurai.” (Sam Anderson, New York). “All I want is to be a success. That’s all I ask.” Joe fails to sell a single set of the Encyclopedia Britannica in six months. Then fails to sell a single Electrolux and must eat 126 pieces of homemade pie, served up by his would-be customers who feel sorry for him. Holed up in his trailer, Joe finds an outlet for his frustrations in a series of ingenious sexual fantasies, and at last strikes gold. His brainstorm, Lightning Rods, Inc., will take Joe to the very top — and to the very heart of corporate insanity — with an outrageous solution to the spectre of sexual harassment in the modern office. An uproarious, hard-boiled modern fable of corporate life, sex, and race in America, Helen DeWitt’s Lightning Rods brims with the satiric energy of Nathanael West and the philosophic import of an Aristophanic comedy of ideas. Her wild yarn is second cousin to the spirit of Mel Brooks and the hilarious reality-blurring of Being John Malkovich. Dewitt continues to take the novel into new realms of storytelling — as the timeliness of Lightning Rods crosses over into timelessness.

Most of the inhabitants are oblivious to these changes, while those few able to recall the lost objects live in fear of the draconian Memory Police, who are committed to ensuring that what has disappeared remains forgotten. When a young writer discovers that her editor is in danger, she concocts a plan to hide him beneath her f loorboards, and together they cling to her writing as the last way of preserving the past.

Book Short Summary:

Kriner tells the story of how readers participate in the future of the word, the eschatology of texts. If texts have a future in the kingdom of God, then readers’ engagements with them—everything from preservation and utterance to translation, criticism, and call and response—can cultivate those futures in the love of the Trinity. Kriner explores how the fallenness and failures of texts, alongside readers’ own failures, ultimately point to reading as a posture of reconciliation, in which reader and text meet in the Maranatha of all text.

Book Short Summary:

This book is a timely and expansive volume on Murakami Haruki, arguably Japan's most high-profile contemporary writer. With contributions from prominent Murakami scholars, this book approaches the works of Murakami Haruki through interdisciplinary perspectives, discussing their significance and value through the lenses of history; geography; politics; gender and sexuality; translation; and literary influence and circulation. Together the chapters provide a multifaceted assessment on Murakami’s literary oeuvre in the last four decades, vouching for its continuous importance in understanding the world and Japan in contemporary times. The book also features exclusive material that includes the cultural critic Katō Norihiro’s final work on Murakami – his chapter here is one of the few works ever translated into English – to interviews with Murakami and discussions from his translators and editors, shedding light not only on Murakami’s works as literature but as products of cross-cultural exchanges. Murakami Haruki and Our Years of Pilgrimage will prove a valuable resource for students and scholars of Japanese studies, comparative and world literature, cultural studies, and beyond.

A History of European Literature

Book Short Summary:

Walter Cohen argues that the history of European literature and each of its standard periods can be illuminated by comparative consideration of the different literary languages within Europe and by the ties of European literature to world literature. World literature is marked by recurrent, systematic features, outcomes of the way that language and literature are at once the products of major change and its agents. Cohen tracks these features from ancient times to the present, distinguishing five main overlapping stages. Within that framework, he shows that European literatures ongoing internal and external relationships are most visible at the level of form rather than of thematic statement or mimetic representation. European literature emerges from world literature before the birth of Europe — during antiquity, whose Classical languages are the heirs to the complex heritage of Afro-Eurasia. This legacy is later transmitted by Latin to the various vernaculars. The uniqueness of the process lies in the gradual displacement of the learned language by the vernacular, long dominated by Romance literatures. That development subsequently informs the second crucial differentiating dimension of European literature: the multicontinental expansion of its languages and characteristic genres, especially the novel, beginning in the Renaissance. This expansion ultimately results in the reintegration of European literature into world literature and thus in the creation of todays global literary system. The distinctiveness of European literature is to be found in these interrelated trajectories.

Book Short Summary:

Winner of Japan's Grand Prix for Crime Fiction • Edgar Award Finalist • Nothing in Japanese literature prepares us for the stark, tension-filled, plot-driven realism of Natsuo Kirino’s award-winning literary mystery Out. This mesmerizing novel tells the story of a brutal murder in the staid Tokyo suburbs, as a young mother who works the night shift making boxed lunches strangles her abusive husband and then seeks the help of her coworkers to dispose of the body and cover up her crime. The coolly intelligent Masako emerges as the plot’s ringleader, but quickly discovers that this killing is merely the beginning, as it leads to a terrifying foray into the violent underbelly of Japanese society. At once a masterpiece of literary suspense and pitch-black comedy of gender warfare, Out is also a moving evocation of the pressures and prejudices that drive women to extreme deeds, and the friendships that bolster them in the aftermath.

Book Short Summary:

A “hauntingly beautiful memoir about family and identity” (NPR) and a young woman's journey to understanding her complicated parents—her mother an Okinawan war bride, her father a Vietnam veteran—and her own, fraught cultural heritage. Elizabeth's mother was working as a nightclub hostess on U.S.-occupied Okinawa when she met the American soldier who would become her husband. The language barrier and power imbalance that defined their early relationship followed them to the predominantly white, upstate New York suburb where they moved to raise their only daughter. There, Elizabeth grew up with the trappings of a typical American childhood and adolescence. Yet even though she felt almost no connection to her mother's distant home, she also felt out of place among her peers. Decades later, Elizabeth comes to recognize the shame and self-loathing that haunt both her and her mother, and attempts a form of reconciliation, not only to come to terms with the embattled dynamics of her family but also to reckon with the injustices that reverberate throughout the history of Okinawa and its people. Clear-eyed and profoundly humane, Speak, Okinawa is a startling accomplishment—a heartfelt exploration of identity, inheritance, forgiveness, and what it means to be an American.

Book Short Summary:

När Aomames taxi fastnar i Tokyos rusningstrafik får hon av chauffören rådet att kliva ur och följa en trappa ned från motorvägen. Hon gör som han säger, och i ett slag är hela hennes tillvaro förändrad. Snart inser hon att hon måste ha förflyttats till en annan verklighet till 1Q84 års värld. Tengo drömmer om att lyckas som författare. I väntan på sitt eget genombrott får han ett märkligt uppdrag: att hjälpa en sjuttonårig flicka med att sammanställa ett manus till en litterär tävling. Han blir alltmer indragen i arbetet med romanen, och omständigheterna omkring dess innehåll och den unga författaren är minst sagt förbryllande. Livet i 1Q84 års värld innebär valsituationer och beslut som Aomame helst skulle slippa, och hon ställs inför ett uppdrag som kommer att kräva mer av henne än något annat hon tidigare gjort. Utan att veta om det börjar hon och Tengo att närma sig varandra, men frågan är om det är möjligt för dem att mötas. Kanske är det kärlek, kanske är det något mycket mer komplicerat än så. 1Q84 Är Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning hittills. Den utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Romansviten omgav av stort hemlighetsmakeri när den kom ut och har slagit alla försäljningsrekord i Japan. Denna utgåva innehåller romansvitens alla tre delar och finns endast som e-bok. Haruki Murakami, född 1949 i Kyoto, är en av dagens mest omtalade och hyllade författare. Genom att förena popkultur med en egensinnig magisk realism har han med sina romaner och novellsamlingar väckt stor uppmärksamhet och fått hängivna läsare världen över.

Book Short Summary:

‘So, Will, are you going to come with me and my team of merry performers to the sunny climes of Australia, where the crowds are already queuing and the streets are paved with gold?’ In the second half of the 19th century, Melbourne is a veritable boom town, as hopefuls from every corner of the globe flock to the gold fields of Victoria. And where people crave gold, they also crave entertainment. Enter stage right: brothers Will and Max Worthing and their wives Mabel and Gertie. The family arrives from England in the 1880s with little else but the masterful talents that will see them rise from simple travelling performers to sophisticated entrepreneurs. Enter stage left: their rivals, Carlo and Rube. Childhood friends since meeting in a London orphanage, the two men have literally fought their way to the top and are now producers of the bawdy but hugely popular ‘Big Show Bonanza’. The fight for supremacy begins. Waiting in the wings: Comedy, tragedy, passion and betrayal; economic depression, the Black Death and the horrors of World War One...

Book Short Summary:

Deep in the heart of Australia’s high country, along an ancient, hidden track, lives Molly Johnson and her four surviving children, another on the way. Husband Joe is away months at a time droving livestock up north, leaving his family in the bush to fend for itself. Molly’s children are her world, and life is hard and precarious with only their dog, Alligator, and a shotgun for protection – but it can be harder when Joe’s around. At just twelve years of age Molly’s eldest son Danny is the true man of the house, determined to see his mother and siblings safe – from raging floodwaters, hunger and intruders, man and reptile. Danny is mature beyond his years, but there are some things no child should see. He knows more than most just what it takes to be a drover’s wife. One night under the moon’s watch, Molly has a visitor of a different kind – a black ‘story keeper’, Yadaka. He’s on the run from authorities in the nearby town, and exchanges kindness for shelter. Both know that justice in this nation caught between two worlds can be as brutal as its landscape. But in their short time together, Yadaka shows Molly a secret truth, and the strength to imagine a different path. Full of fury and power, Leah Purcell’s The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson is a brave reimagining of the Henry Lawson short story that has become an Australian classic. Brilliantly plotted, it is a compelling thriller of our pioneering past that confronts head-on issues of today: race, gender, violence and inheritance.

Book Short Summary:

1984. Aomame hat zwei verschieden große Ohren. Beim Rendezvous mit einem reichen Ölhändler zückt sie eine Nadel und ersticht ihn – ein Auftragsmord, um altes Unrecht zu sühnen. Tengo ist Hobby-Schriftsteller. Er soll einen Roman der exzentrischen 17-jährigen Fukaeri überarbeiten, damit sie einen Literaturpreis bekommt. Der Text ist äußerst originell, aber schlecht geschrieben – ein riskanter Auftrag. Aomame wundert sich, warum die Nachrichten ihren Mord nicht melden. Ist sie in eine Parallelwelt geraten? Um diese Sphäre vom gewöhnlichen Leben im Jahr 1984 zu unterscheiden, gibt Aomame der neuen, unheimlichen Welt den Namen 1Q84.

Book Short Summary:

2012 was a year of financial crises and ecological disasters, of endings and forebodings. The world did not end on December 21st as the Mayan calendar predicted, but became the stage for new beginnings, utopian communities, protest groups and solidarity movements. The essays in this book form an intertextual space for negotiating meaningful facts and fictions with an aim to understanding the present. Discussions focus on utopia and dystopia from literature and film, not only within the framework of science fiction but also critical theory, gender politics and social sciences. The authors of these essays are international academics whose interest lies in utopian studies and who attended the 13th International Conference of Utopian Studies, “The Shape of Things to Come”, held in Tarragona, Spain, in 2012.

Book Short Summary:

A stunning literary SF novel from the multiple award winning Christopher Priest. A tale of murder, artistic rivalry and literary trickery; a Chinese puzzle of a novel where nothing is quite what it seems; a narrator whose agenda is artful and subtle; a narrative that pulls you in and plays an elegant game with you. The Dream Archipelago is a vast network of islands. The names of the islands are different depending on who you talk to, their very locations seem to twist and shift. Some islands have been sculpted into vast musical instruments, others are home to lethal creatures, others the playground for high society. Hot winds blow across the archipelago and a war fought between two distant continents is played out across its waters. THE ISLANDERS serves both as an untrustworthy but enticing guide to the islands, an intriguing, multi-layered tale of a murder and the suspect legacy of its appealing but definitely untrustworthy narrator.

Book Short Summary:

A shape-shifter arrives at Tokyo harbour in human form, set to embark on an unstoppable rampage through the city’s train network… A young woman is accompanied home one night by a reclusive student, and finds herself lured into a flat full of eerie Egyptian artefacts… A man suspects his young wife’s obsession with picnicking every weekend in the city’s parks hides a darker motive… At first, Tokyo appears in these stories as it does to many outsiders: a city of bewildering scale, awe-inspiring modernity, peculiar rules, unknowable secrets and, to some extent, danger. Characters observe their fellow citizens from afar, hesitant to stray from their daily routines to engage with them. But Tokyo being the city it is, random encounters inevitably take place – a naïve book collector, mistaken for a French speaker, is drawn into a world he never knew existed; a woman seeking psychiatric help finds herself in a taxi with an older man wanting to share his own peculiar revelations; a depressed divorcee accepts an unexpected lunch invitation to try Thai food for the very first time… The result in each story is a small but crucial change in perspective, a sampling of the unexpected yet simple pleasure of other people’s company. As one character puts it, ‘The world is full of delicious things, you know.’
