Murakami's new book 1Q84

Japanese author Haruki Murakami release his latest book in English a few days ago.  It's titled 1Q84 and has been much anticipated by his fans who stretch from Japan where is revered as a god to most of the English speaking world.  In typical Murakami style the book is surreal, strange and captivating.  The book is set in 1984 and follows Aomame who wanders into a mysterious other world encountering a strange religious cult.  We also meet Tengo, a literary novelist who is asked to rewrite a young woman's entry into a literary prize.  It might be fiction, it might be fraud.  

Fans of Murakami are saying this is a masterpiece.  It's written in his characteristic style and draws the reader into a world that world that can't be true and yet he is always exploring the nature of reality.  See what all the fuss is about and reserve a copy today through our catalogue
