The six stories in Haruki Murakami’s mesmerizing collection are set at the time of the catastrophic 1995 Kobe earthquake, when Japan became brutally aware of the fragility of its daily existence. But the upheavals that afflict Murakami’s characters are even deeper and more mysterious, emanating from a place where the human meets the inhuman.

Please 'don't act' the characters, in their imagined voices and inflections, it is not a theatrical performance an audio reading; please just read in clear and non passionate regular voice.
