Whether in complex, dreamlike novels like “The Wind-up Bird Chronicle” and “Kafka on the Shore” or the more realistic short stories in his latest collection, “Men Without Women,” Murakami is drawn to the abiding strangeness and unfathomability of life.

    Most species hang out only with family members. Everybody else is a potential enemy. Good ol’ Homo sapiens have been successful because we’ve extended the definition of family by using mutually agreed upon stories — “fictive kinship” as Israeli researcher Yuval Noah Harari points out.

    Madeleine L’Engle once said that “A Wrinkle in Time” was rejected by 26 publishers. On the surface, this seems incredible, given that it went on to win the 1962 Newbery Medal and become one of the most beloved of all modern children’s novels (in one poll second in popularity only to E.B. White’s “Charlotte’s Web”).

    David Sedaris has spent decades mining his life for nuggets he can polish and sell: the time he was a department store elf, going to the dentist in Paris, his time in a nudist trailer park. His essays tend to meander over a true-ish story from his life, with characters a bit more eccentric than the people you tend to meet in your life, like the taxidermist with the mummified human arm or his neighbor who dyed her teenage daughter’s hair gray in order to keep being the pretty one.

    A week ago, Kanye West said that 400 years of slavery was a “choice,” appearing to blame enslaved black people for not freeing themselves sooner. He said that the discussion about putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill made him want “to use Bitcoin,” because, “It’s like when you see all the slave movies: Why you gotta keep reminding us about slavery?” And West said that certain black icons such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X are “just too far in the past and not relatable and that’s what makes them safe.”

    If there is an urtext of modern feminism, especially for those of us who prefer it in the form of juicy dystopian novels instead of lofty essays, then Margaret Atwood’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” is probably the closest thing we’ve got. It’s one of those books that people believe can tell a lot about another person based on what that other person thought of it.

    A casual observer with no particular ax to grind, but one who cares about the country’s stewardship, would probably think the president-elect of the United States would have better ways of spending his time than tweeting nasty, personal attacks against political opponents who are backing vote recounts in battleground states that he narrowly won.

    Ernest Hemingway is the macho face of 20th-century prose. His birth in 1899 marked the arrival of a man who wanted to dissociate literature from the taint of femininity it had acquired under the influence of Oscar Wilde and align it instead with a kind of hairy masculinity.

    "Ernest Hemingway: The Man Behind the Cultivated Image of Hyper-Masculinity" is from the May 17, 2017 Books section of The Washington Post. It was written by Matthew Adams and narrated by Sam Scholl.
