Haruki Murakami Book Recommendations (5 Books)

Haruki Murakami is a Japanese novelist, short-story writer, and translator whose deeply imaginative and often ambiguous books became international bestsellers. He was born on January 12, 1949, in Kyoto, Japan, during the post-war baby boom as an only child. His parents were both teachers of Japanese literature, and he probably inherited the passion for writing from them. However, he was never a big fan of Japanese literature and was instead under heavy influence of Western culture. Murakami has written at least 21 books, all translated into up to 50 languages. His body of work includes fiction, nonfiction, and short story collections, nine of which have won notable awards. His first novel, "Hear the Wind Sing," won a prize for best fiction by a new writer. His most popular book is "Norwegian Wood". Throughout his collection of works, Murakami conveys themes of love, loss, music, and sexual identity.
