Things get a bit strange in this month’s reading group. Kafka on the Shore is Murakami at his finest. Dark magic realism twists and turns the plot. Cats talk, fish rain from the sky and ghosts walk the earth. Metaphor blends beautifully with reality; the extra layer of shadow that Murakami injects into his prose enhances definition, and produces a narrative of subtle clarity – a clarity that you feel before you fully understand.
Leap in! Join our gorgeous group of regulars. The atmosphere is relaxed, the conversation warm and intelligent. There is wine, there are nibbles. There is Matt the fiction man. What more could we give you!
