Product description

Wind/Pinball includes Haruki Murakamis first two novels, published back-to-back, for the first time in English outside Japan. With a new introduction by the author. Published as a reversible hardback 'If youre the sort of guy who raids the refrigerators of silent kitchens at three oclock in the morning, you can only write accordingly. Thats who I am.' Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973 are Haruki Murakamis earliest novels. They follow the fortunes of the narrator and his friend, known only by his nickname, the Rat. In Hear the Wind Sing the narrator is home from college on his summer break. He spends his time drinking beer and smoking in Js Bar with the Rat, listening to the radio, thinking about writing and the women he has slept with, and pursuing a relationship with a girl with nine fingers. Three years later, in Pinball, 1973, he has moved to Tokyo to work as a translator and live with indistinguishable twin girls, but the Rat has remained behind, despite his efforts to leave both the town and his girlfriend. The narrator finds himself haunted by memories of his own doomed relationship but also, more bizarrely, by his short-lived obsession with playing pinball in Js Bar. This sends him on a quest to find the exact model of pinball machine he had enjoyed playing years earlier: the three-flipper Spaceship.
