It’s hard to pick just one of Murakami’s works, but this is my favorite. Impossible to adequately describe here, but it’s probably the only novel in which Colonel Sanders (yes, that one) will scare the hell out of you and then later make you cry tears of joy.

For a playful mood, I’d turn to Murkami’s sexual coming of age novel. Bizarre and erotic, sensual and dreamy, this surrealistic page turner includes bibliophile and jazz subplots custom tailored to my nerd-dom.

This classic is my favorite book by Murakami. This is about love, longing and regret. It’s kind of sad, but at the same time, it makes you feel alive. It’s the emotional reality of loss.
