I read recently that in April the publishing house Bungei Shunju will be publishing 『女のいない男たち』 Onna no inai otokotachi (Men Without Women), a collection of short stories by Murakami Haruki. 5 of the included stories have been previously published and one will be new. I’ve actually read 4 of the 5 previously published stories and they are quite good, so I thought I’d give it a plug here. Any of my readers who are literate in Japanese and looking for something to read, I’d definitely recommend this book! Look for it on bookshelves April 18th.
