Description - Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami
Here are animated crows, a criminal monkey, an ice man, as well as the dreams that shape us and the things we wish for. Whether during a chance reunion in Italy, a romantic exile in Greece, a holiday in Hawaii or in the grip of everyday life, Murakami's characters confront loss, or sexuality, or the glow of a firefly, or the impossible distance between those who ought to be closest of all.

Book Review: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami - Reviewed by rachthevego (13 Jun 2011)
This was an introduction to Jaruki Murakami's work for me, recommended to me by a friend. Normally I am not a lover of short stories but these were intriguing, if a little bizarre and got me hooked on the author. Murakami's style reminds me somewhat of one of my favourite authors, Neil Gaiman although even Gaiman's works are not quite as bizarre. A mix of folklore, science fiction and Urban fantasy, these stories are very engaging (and some of them not too short so more like mini novels with a satisfying degree of character development and involvement!).
