A Novel

Haruki Murakami, translated from the Japanese by Jay Rubin and Philip Gabriel

“Here’s an unorthodox suggestion: Try to read Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 in as close to a single sitting as you can. It won’t be easy — the novel clocks in at 926 pages and is often densely allusive, if readable throughout. Still, there’s something about the book that requires the deep immersion, the otherworldly sense of connection/disconnection, that only an extended plunge allows. You want to get up from these pages feeling groggy, as if you’ve been wrenched out of everyday experience, drawn into a landscape where the boundary between reality and imagination has been rendered moot.”
