Haruki Murakami - 1Q84 ​1-3. (angol)
A ​mesmerising, epic masterpiece from Haruki Murakami. The year is 1984. Aomame sits in a taxi on the expressway in Tokyo. Her work is not the kind which can be discussed in public but she is in a hurry to carry out an assignment and, with the traffic at a stand-still, the driver proposes a solution. She agrees, but as a result of her actions starts to feel increasingly detached from the real world. She has been on a top-secret mission, and her next job will lead her to encounter the apparently superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange affair surrounding a literary prize to which a mysterious seventeen-year-old girl has submitted her remarkable first novel. It seems to be based on her own experiences and moves readers in unusual ways. Can her story really be true? Aomame and Tengo's stories influence one another, at times by accident and at times intentionally, as the two come closer and closer to intertwining. As 1Q84 accelerates towards its conclusion, both are pursued by persons and forces they do not know and cannot understand. As they begin to decipher more about the strange world into which they have slipped, so they sense their destinies converging. What they cannot know is whether they will find one another before they are themselves found. 1Q84 is a magnificent and fully-imagined work of fiction, a thriller, a love-story and a mind-bending ode to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. It is a world from which the reader emerges stunned and altered.

Haruki Murakami - 1Q84 ​- Livre 2
Les ​choses qui restent enfermées dans notre coeur n'existent pas en ce monde. Mais c'est dans notre coeur, ce monde à part, qu'elles se construisent pour y vivre. Le Livre 1 a révélé l'existence du monde 1Q84. Certaines questions ont trouvé leur réponse. D'autres subsistent : qui sont les Little People ? Comment se fraient-ils un chemin vers le monde réel ? Pourquoi deux lunes dans le ciel ? Et la chrysalide de l'air, est-elle ce lieu ou sommeille notre double ? Ceux qui s'aiment ne sont jamais seuls. Le destin de Tengo et d'Aomamé est en marche.

Haruki Murakami - 1Q84 ​3. (német)
Als ​Tengo seinen komatösen Vater im Krankenhaus besuchen will, findet er in dessen Krankenbett eine ›Puppe aus Luft‹ vor, die ein Abbild Aomames als junges Mädchen in sich birgt. Er greift nach ihrer Hand, und eine unsichtbare Verbindung entsteht. Fortan wartet Tengo darauf, der Puppe nochmals zu begegnen, doch vergebens. War das Signal nicht stark genug, um die zwischen Leben und Tod schwankende Aomame zu retten? Unterdessen setzt die gefährliche Sekte alles daran, um den Mord an ihrem ›Leader‹ aufzuklären. Aomames Spur wird von einem so unheimlichen wie unangenehmen Agenten aufgenommen. Er ermittelt mit tödlicher Präzision, doch schließlich bringt er mehr in Erfahrung, als gut für ihn ist … Im dritten Teil des Epos beweist Murakami erneut aufs Eindrucksvollste, dass sich die Schraube des gnadenlos packenden Erzählens immer noch etwas weiter drehen lässt. Auch die jüngste Episode seines größten Werks wird Sie mit dem Wunsch zurücklassen, diese unfassbare Geschichte möge niemals enden.

The ​final part of Murakami's gripping, sensational mystery story At the close of Book Two of 1Q84, Aomame and Tengo found themselves in perilous situations, threatened and confused.

Haruki Murakami - 1Q84 ​- Livre 3
Ils ​ne le savaient pas alors, mais c'était là l'unique lieu parfait en ce monde. Un lieu totalement isolé et le seul pourtant à n'être pas aux couleurs de la solitude. Le Livre 3 fait entendre une nouvelle voix, celle d'Ushikawa. Et pose d'autres questions : quel est ce père qui sans cesse revient frapper à notre porte? La réalité est-elle jamais véritable ? Et le temps, cette illusion, à jamais perdu ? Sous les deux lunes de 1Q84, Aomamé et Tengo ne sont plus seuls...

Haruki Murakami - Seiji Ozawa - Absolutely ​on Music
A ​deeply personal, intimate conversation about music and writing between the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author and the former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. In Absolutely on Music, internationally Haruki Murakami sits down with his friend Seiji Ozawa, the revered former conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, for a series of conversations on their shared passion: music. Over the course of two years, Murakami and Ozawa discuss everything from Brahms to Beethoven, from Leonard Bernstein to Glenn Gould, from Bartók to Mahler, and from pop-up orchestras to opera. They listen to and dissect recordings of some of their favorite performances, and Murakami questions Ozawa about his career conducting orchestras around the world. Culminating in Murakami’s ten-day visit to the banks of Lake Geneva to observe Ozawa’s retreat for young musicians, the book is interspersed with ruminations on record collecting, jazz clubs, orchestra halls, film scores, and much more. A deep reflection on the essential nature of both music and writing, Absolutely on Music is an unprecedented glimpse into the minds of two maestros. A selection of the music discussed by Murakami and Ozawa is available at harukimurakami.com.

Haruki Murakami - Wenn ​der Wind singt / Pinball 1973
›Wenn ​der Wind singt‹, Haruki Murakamis Debüt, folgt einem namenlosen 21-jährigen Studenten, der die Semesterferien (und damit den August 1970) in seinem kleinen Heimatort verbringt. Die Zeit vertreibt er sich mit seinem besten Freund, genannt »Ratte«, einem Mädchen mit vier Fingern an der linken Hand und einem Barkeeper. Die Handlung von ›Pinball 1973‹ setzt drei Jahre später ein. Der junge Mann lebt inzwischen in Tokio, während die »Ratte« immer noch in »J.’s Bar« darauf wartet, dass das Leben losgeht. Ein melancholischer, atmosphärisch dichter Roman, der zudem die wohl besten Flipperszenen der Literaturgeschichte enthält. Nach langem Zögern hat Haruki Murakami die Bitten seiner Lesergemeinde erhört und der Veröffentlichung dieser außerhalb Japans nie erschienenen Frühwerke zugestimmt. Zusammen mit ›Wilde Schafsjagd‹ (DuMont 2005) bilden sie die »Trilogie der Ratte«, die nach 35 Jahren nun erstmals vollständig auf Deutsch vorliegt. Murakamis berühmter »Boku«-Erzähler wurde hier erstmals dem Publikum vorgestellt. Eine kleine Sensation, nicht nur für eingefleischte Murakami-Fans.

Haruki Murakami - Kafka ​en la orilla
Pasado ​y presente, sueño y vigilia, se funden en una versión inusitada de la tragedia de Edipo. Kafaka Tamura se va de casa el día que cumple quince años. Los motivos, si es que los hay, son las malas relaciones con su padre -un famoso escultor convencido de que su hijo repetirá el aciago sino de Edipo de la tragedia clásica- y la sensación de vacía producida por el abandono de su madre y su hermana. Sus pasos le llevarán al sur de Japón, a Takamatsu, donde encontrará refugio en una peculiar biblioteca. Si sobre la vida de Kafka se cierne la tragedia (en el sentido clásico), sobre la de Satoru Nakata ya se ha abatido: de niño, durante la II Guerra Mundial, sufrió un extraña accidente del que salió sumido en una especie de olvido de sí, con dificultades para comunicarse. A los 60 años, abandona Tokyo y emprende un viaje que le conducirá, como a Kafka, a la biblioteca de Takamasu. Así, vidas y destinos, destinos y pesadillas se van entretejiendo en un curso inexorable que no atiende a razones ni a voluntades. Elegida mejor novela de 2005 por The New York Times.

Haruki Murakami - The ​Strange Library
'All ​I did was go to the library to borrow some books'. On his way home from school, the young narrator of The Strange Library finds himself wondering how taxes were collected in the Ottoman Empire. He pops into the local library to see if it has a book on the subject. This is his first mistake. Led to a special 'reading room' in a maze under the library by a strange old man, he finds himself imprisoned with only a sheep man, who makes excellent donuts, and a girl, who can talk with her hands, for company. His mother will be worrying why he hasn't returned in time for dinner and the old man seems to have an appetite for eating small boy's brains. How will he escape?

Haruki Murakami - La ​muerte del comendador
En ​plena crisis de pareja, un retratista de cierto prestigio abandona Tokio en dirección al norte de Japón. Confuso, sumido en sus recuerdos, deambula por el país hasta que, finalmente, un amigo le ofrece instalarse en una pequeña casa aislada, rodeada de bosques, que pertenece a su padre, un pintor famoso. En suma, un lugar donde retirarse durante un tiempo. En esa casa de paredes vacías, tras oír extraños ruidos, el protagonista descubre en un desván lo que parece un cuadro, envuelto y con una etiqueta en la que se lee: «La muerte del comendador». Cuando se decida a desenvolverlo se abrirá ante él un extraño mundo donde la ópera Don Giovanni de Mozart, el encargo de un retrato, una tímida adolescente y, por supuesto, un comendador, sembrarán de incógnitas su vida, hasta hace poco anodina y rutinaria. Este primer volumen de la novela La muerte del comendador es un fascinante laberinto donde lo cotidiano se ve invadido de señales indescifrables, de preguntas cuya respuesta todavía está lejos de vislumbrarse. El lector, al igual que el protagonista, deberá permanecer muy atento.

Haruki Murakami - Colorless ​Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
Tsukuru ​Tazaki had four best friends at school. By chance all of their names contained a colour. The two boys were called Akamatsu, meaning 'red pine', and Oumi, 'blue sea', while the girls' names were Shirane, 'white root', and Kurono, 'black field'. Tazaki was the only last name with no colour in it. One day Tsukuru Tazaki's friends announced that they didn't want to see him, or talk to him, ever again. Since that day Tsukuru has been floating through life, unable to form intimate connections with anyone. But then he meets Sara, who tells him that the time has come to find out what happened all those years ago.

Haruki Murakami - Die ​Pilgerjahre des farblosen Herrn Tazaki
Der ​junge Tsukuru Tazaki ist Teil einer Clique von fünf Freunden, deren Mitglieder alle eine Farbe im Namen tragen. Nur Tsukuru fällt aus dem Rahmen und empfindet sich – auch im übertragenen Sinne – als farblos, denn anders als seine Freunde hat er keine besonderen Eigenheiten oder Vorlieben, ausgenommen vielleicht ein vages Interesse für Bahnhöfe. Als er nach der Oberschule die gemeinsame Heimatstadt Nagoya verlässt, um in Tokio zu studieren, tut dies der Freundschaft keinen Abbruch. Zumindest nicht bis zu jenem Sommertag, an dem Tsukuru voller Vorfreude auf die Ferien nach Nagoya zurückkehrt – und herausfindet, dass seine Freunde ihn plötzlich und unerklärlicherweise schneiden. Erfolglos versucht er wieder und wieder, sie zu erreichen, bis er schließlich einen Anruf erhält: Tsukuru solle sich in Zukunft von ihnen fernhalten, lautet die Botschaft, er wisse schon, warum. Verzweifelt kehrt Tsukuru nach Tokio zurück, wo er ein halbes Jahr am Rande des Selbstmords verbringt. Viele Jahre später offenbart sich der inzwischen 36-jährige Tsukuru seiner neuen Freundin Sara, die nicht glauben kann, dass er nie versucht hat, der Geschichte auf den Grund zu gehen. Von ihr ermutigt, macht Tsukuru sich auf, um sich den Dämonen seiner Vergangenheit zu stellen.

Haruki Murakami - L'éléphant ​s'évapore
Une ​curieuse digression sur les kangourous. Un éléphant qui se volatilise. Un nain diabolique qui danse. Ou une jeune fille « cent pour cent parfaite ». À travers ces dix-sept nouvelles, petits contes anodins de notre quotidien, Haruki Murakami entraîne son lecteur dans une dimension parallèle à l'imaginaire délicieusement drôle et bizarre, au fil d'un Japon nostalgique et moderne à la fois. Farouchement zen et férocement fantastique, l'auteur déploie encore une fois son art magistral, et nous montre qu'il sait comme personne comment transfigurer la banalité de nos existences.

Haruki Murakami - Wovon ​ich rede, wenn ich vom Laufen rede
Für ​Leser und Läufer: Murakamis persönlichstes Buch! Zwei Leidenschaften bestimmen Haruki Murakamis Leben: Schreiben und Laufen. Eines verbindet beide Tätigkeiten – ihre Intensität. Für Haruki Murakami bedeutet das Laufen ein zweites Leben, in dem er sich Kraft, Inspiration, vor allem aber die Zähigkeit zum Schreiben holt. Der Einfall und Entschluss, Romanautor zu werden, kam ihm beim Sport. Das Sitzen am Schreibtisch gleicht er durch Laufen aus. Nach langsamen ersten Schritten hat er sich in den vergangenen dreißig Jahren professionalisiert: Längst sind zu den jährlichen Marathons auch Triathlon und Ultralanglauf von 100 Kilometern hinzugekommen. Für seinen Grabstein wünscht er sich die Inschrift: „Haruki Murakami 1949-20**, Schriftsteller (und Läufer) – Zumindest ist er nie gegangen.“

Haruki Murakami - The ​Elephant Vanishes
The ​Elephant Vanishes is a collection of short stories by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. The stories were written between 1983 and 1990, and the collection's first English publication was in 1993. Stylistically and thematically, the collection aligns with Murakami's previous work. The stories mesh normality with surrealism, and focus on painful issues involving loss, destruction, confusion and loneliness. The title for the book is derived from the final story in the collection.

Haruki Murakami - Blind ​Willow, Sleeping Woman
A ​young man accompanies his cousin to the hospital to check an unusual hearing complaint and recalls a story of a woman put to sleep by tiny flies crawling inside her ear; a mirror appears out of nowhere and a nightwatchman is unnerved as his reflection tries to take control of him; a couple's relationship is unbalanced after dining exclusively on exquisite crab while on holiday; a man follows instructions on the back of a postcard to apply for a job, but an unknown password stands between him and his mysterious employer. In each one of these stories Murakami sidesteps the real and sprints for the surreal. Everyday events are transcended, leaving the reader dazzled by this master of his craft.

Haruki Murakami - South ​of the Border, West of the Sun
Growing ​up in the suburbs in post-war Japan, it seemed to Hajime that everyone but him had brothers and sisters. His sole companion was Shimamoto, also an only child. Together they spent long afternoons listening to her father's record collection. But when his family moved away, the two lost touch. Now Hajime is in his thirties. After a decade of drifting he has found happiness with his loving wife and two daughters, and success running a jazz bar. Then Shimamoto reappears. She is beautiful, intense, enveloped in mystery. Hajime is catapulted into the past, putting at risk all he has in the present.

Haruki Murakami - Underground
On ​Monday 20 March 1995 the Japanese Aum cult released a deadly cloud of Sarin nerve gas into the Tokyo underground. 12 people were killed and an estimated 3,800 suffered serious after-effects. Haruki Murakami, one of Japan's leading novelists (considered by many to be one of the most important writers now writing), was both shocked and fascinated by the awful event. Murakami's response was to interview as many of those affected as he could (only 60 victims were willing to be questioned), interested as he was in the stories created by this one awful event on so many lives. He also interviewed a number of members of the Aum cult: "I'm sure each member of the Science and Technology elite had his own personal reasons for renouncing the world and joining Aum. What they all had in common, though, was a desire to put the technical skill and knowledge they'd acquired in the service of a more meaningful goal ... that might very well be me. It might be you". The result is Underground his first work of non-fiction. Murakami writes complex, sometimes overbearing and dense novels but he here makes very little intervention into his text, simply presenting a background sketch of each before allowing the victims and cult-members to speak freely for themselves through the transcripts. They present an intricate, rounded and cinematic view of day that none of us should ever forget.

Haruki Murakami - Saules ​aveugles, femmes endormies
Conteur ​hors pair, Haruki Murakami explore dans ces vingt-trois nouvelles délicatement ciselées, une multitude de mondes oscillant perpétuellement entre le réel et le rêve. Parmi ces vies suspendues, de troublants portraits : un homme d'affaires hanté par son premier amour, un couple adultérin réfugié sur une île grecque, un homme obsédé par les spaghettis, ou encore un gardien de nuit poursuivi par son reflet... Qu'ils guettent un présage ou un miroir, la mort ou un kangourou, tous sont empreints d'une mélancolie poétique qui fascine et résonne en chacun de nous.

Haruki Murakami - La ​fin des temps
Le ​narrateur, un informaticien de très haut niveau, qui effectue des missions spéciales, apporte un jour sa collaboration à un vieux savant dont le laboratoire se situe dans les sous-sols obscurs d'un immeuble. Dès lors, il est entraîné dans une aventure terrifiante. Parallèlement à ce Hard-boiled wonderland, interviennent en alternance les chapitres de La Fin des temps : le narrateur se trouve prisonnier d'une ville onirique, peuplée de licornes au pelage doré. Les deux intrigues se rejoindront finalement. De même que son personnage flirte avec d'anodines jeunes filles, Haruki Murakami courtise ici le mythe - ce qui nous vaut une fable d'une prenante étrangeté. Ce roman a obtenu au Japon le prix Tanizaki.

Haruki Murakami - What ​I Talk About When I Talk About Running
From ​the best-selling author of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and After Dark, a rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running, and the integral impact both have made on his life. In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Haruki Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he’d completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, not to mention triathlons and a slew of critically acclaimed books, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and–even more important–on his writing. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and includes settings ranging from Tokyo’s Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston among young women who outpace him. Through this marvellous lens of sport emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer, his greatest triumphs and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after the age of fifty, of seeing his race times improve and then fall back. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is both for fans of this masterful yet guardedly private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

Haruki Murakami - Mister ​Aufziehvogel
Erst ​verschwindet der Kater, dann die Frau. Für Toru Okada beginnt damit eine Suche nach der verlorenen Liebe oder zumindest nach der Illusion, die er von sich selbst hatte. Haruki Murakamis „Mister Aufziehvogel“ ist zunächst ein Bildungsroman über einen Dreißigjährigen, der seiner Identität und Kultur auf der Spur ist. Es ist aber ebenso eine episodenhafte Aufarbeitung dunkler Kriegserinnerungen, eine sarkastische Abrechnung mit der Verlogenheit der Politik, ein Gesellschaftsbild des postmodernen Japans mit verschwimmenden Grenzen zwischen Wirklichkeit und Imagination.

Haruki Murakami - De ​qué hablo cuando hablo de correr
En ​1982, tras dejar el local de jazz que regentaba y decidir que, en adelante, se dedicaria exclusivamente a escribir, Haruki Murakami comenzo tambien a correr. Al ano siguiente correria en solitario el trayecto que separa Atenas de Maraton, su bautizo en esta carrera clasica. Ahora, ya con numerosos libros publicados con gran exito en todo el mundo, y despues de participar en muchas carreras de larga distancia en diferentes ciudades y parajes, Murakami reflexiona sobre la influencia que este deporte ha ejercido en su vida y en su obra. Mientras habla de sus duros entrenamientos diarios y su afan de superacion, de su pasion por la musica o de los lugares a los que viaja, va dibujandose la idea de que, para Murakami, escribir y correr se han convertido en una actitud vital. Reflexivo y divertido, filosofico y lleno de anecdotas, este volumen nos adentra plenamente en el universo de un autor que ha deslumbrado a la critica mas exigente y hechizado a miles de lectores.

Haruki Murakami - Killing ​Commendatore
In ​Killing Commendatore, a thirty-something portrait painter in Tokyo is abandoned by his wife and finds himself holed up in the mountain home of a famous artist, Tomohiko Amada. When he discovers a previously unseen painting in the attic, he unintentionally opens a circle of mysterious circumstances. To close it, he must complete a journey that involves a mysterious ringing bell, a two-foot-high physical manifestation of an Idea, a dapper businessman who lives across the valley, a precocious thirteen-year-old girl, a Nazi assassination attempt during World War II in Vienna, a pit in the woods behind the artist’s home, and an underworld haunted by Double Metaphors. A tour de force of love and loneliness, war and art—as well as a loving homage to The Great Gatsby—Killing Commendatore is a stunning work of imagination from one of our greatest writers

Haruki Murakami - Hard-boiled ​Wonderland and the End of the World
Japan's ​most widely-read and controversial writer, author of A Wild Sheep Chase, hurtles into the consciousness of the West with this narrative about a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters--not to mention Bob Dylan and Lauren Bacall.

Haruki Murakami - Pinball, ​1973
The ​plot centers on the narrator's brief but intense obsession with pinball, his life as a freelance translator, and his later efforts to reunite with the old pinball machine that he used to play. He describes living with a pair of identical unnamed female twins, who mysteriously appear in his apartment one morning, and disappear at the end of the book. Interspersed with the narrative are his memories of the Japanese student movement, and of his old girlfriend Naoko, who hanged herself, like the character of the same name in Murakami's later novel _Norwegian Wood._ The plot alternates between describing the life of narrator and that of his friend, The Rat.
