South of the Border, West of the Sun

Haruki Murakami

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

In South of the Border, West of the Sun, the simple arc of a man's life—with its attendant rhythms of success and disappointment—becomes the exquisite literary terrain of Haruki Murakami's most haunting work.Born in 1951 in an affluent Tokyo suburb, Hajime—“beginning” in Japanese—has arrived at middle age wanting for almost nothing. The postwar years have brought him a fine marriage, two daughters, and an enviable career as the proprietor of two jazz clubs. Yet a nagging sense of inauthenticity about his success threatens Hajime's happiness. And a boyhood memory of a wise, lonely girl named Shimamoto clouds his heart.When Shimamoto shows up one rainy night, now a breathtaking beauty with a secret from which she is unable to escape, the fault lines of doubt in Hajime's quotidian existence begin to give way. And the details of stolen moments past and present—a Nat King Cole melody, a face pressed against a window, a handful of ashes drifting downriver to the sea—threaten to undo him completely. Rich, mysterious, quietly dazzling, South of the Border, West of the Sun is Haruki Murakami's wisest and most compelling fiction.
