WINNER: FIND OF THE YEAR 2015

After Dark - Jay Rubin, Haruki Murakami

Thanks to Gregor Xane, I was introduced to Haruki Murakami in 2015. After expressing my interest in Murakami’s 1Q84, Xane told me, “If you want a short sample of his work, try After Dark.” Am I ever glad I did. 

 

After Dark is a rabbit-hole view of Tokyo’s nightlife. Gangsters, hookers, diner patrons, and one slumbering dreamer all blend perfectly to create this mind-bending tour of nocturnal Japan. I’ve never read anything like this book, and I doubt I will ever find its equal. Not only is this my find of the year, but it is now one of my all time favorite reads. 

 

Here’s my original review.
