Haruki Murakami

I'm reading a collection of short stories... "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" by Haruki Murakami. I'm loving it! Very short glimpses.... snapshots of moments in life. Poetic.

Anybody ever read him before?

If so, what did you read by him and how did you like it?

Yes, he's great. I've read "Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World", "The Elephant vanishes and other Stories" and I've got three more waiting to be read.

More than any other writer I can think of, he captures the existential quirkiness of Japan and by extension everywhere else.
