The eight masterful stories in this new collection are all told in the first person by a classic Murakami narrator. From nostalgic memories of youth , meditations on music and an ardent love of baseball to dreamlike scenarios, an encounter with a talking monkey, and invented jazz albums, together these stories challenge the boundaries between our minds and the exterior world. Occasionally, a narrator who may or may not be Haruki himself is present. Is it memoir or fiction? The reader decides.

Philosophical and mysterious, the stories in First Person Singular all touch beautifully on love and solitude, childhood and memory… with a signature Murakami twist.
