Wind / Pinball: Two Novels

Author:

The first two short novels–never before widely available in the U.S.–by the internationally acclaimed writer, newly translated, in one volume, with a new introduction by the author.

Widely available in English for the first time ever, Wind/Pinball brings together the two first novels–Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973–by the legendary Haruki Murakami. Written at his kitchen table in the hours before dawn, these remarkable short works–powerful, at times surreal, stories about two young men coming of age–launched the career of one of the most celebrated authors of our time. Bearing all the hallmarks of Murakami’s later books, Wind/Pinball gives readers a fascinating insight into a great writer’s beginnings.
