Pinball
Pinball | Haruki Murakami
Pinball, 1973 is Murakami's second novel, available for the first time in English outside Japan. With a new introduction by the author. Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973 are Haruki Murakamie(tm)s earliest novels. They follow the fortunes of the narrator and his friend, known only by his nickname, the Rat. Pinball, 1973 picks up three years after the events of Hear the Wind Sing. The narrator has moved to Tokyo to work as a translator and live with indistinguishable twin girls, but the Rat has remained behind, despite his efforts to leave both the town and his girlfriend. The narrator finds himself haunted by memories of his own doomed relationship but also, more bizarrely, by his short-lived obsession with playing pinball in Je(tm)s Bar. This sends him on a quest to find the exact model of pinball machine he had enjoyed playing years earlier: the three-flipper Spaceship.

The first two books of Murakami already promising and just had me til the last page.

Seine ersten beiden Bücher lassen schon erahnen, was für gute Geschichten von Murakami kommen werden und sein Vorwort fand ich klasse. Definitiv lesenswert!

‚In der Bahn sagte ich mir immer wieder: „Alles ist vorbei, vergiss es. Deshalb bist du doch hergekommen.“ Aber ich konnte nicht vergessen. Nicht, dass ich Naoko liebte. Und nicht, dass sie tot war. Gar nichts war vorbei.‘

It's hard to read when the sky is this blue! ☀️ I'm not transfixed by this one, but love Murakami and this lovely, small edition of his early work.
