The major new work of fiction from the internationally acclaimed, #1 NYT bestselling author--a dazzling collection of short stories.


The much-anticipated new short story collection from the beloved Haruki Murakami--his first major new work of fiction since the #1 New York Times bestselling Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage--Men Without Women showcases the author at the peak of his powers. Across seven tales, Murakami draws his piercing observation to the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and The Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Haruki Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times Bestseller"Mesmerizing tales of profound alienation. . . . Murakami is a master of the open-ended mystery." —The Washington Post"[A] beguilingly irresistible book. Like a lost lover, it holds on tight long after the affair is over." —The New York Times Book Review"Classic Murakami. . . . [His] voice—cool, poised, witty, characterized by a peculiar blend of whimsy and poignancy, wit and profundity—hasn't lost its power to unsettle even as it amuses." —The Boston Globe"Supremely enjoyable, philosopical and pitch-perfect. . . . The mix of humour and melancholy in Murakami's writing is extraordinary." —The Observer (UK)"Written with all the cats, spaghetti, humor and gentle surrealism we might expect . . . Men Without Women is a funny, lovely, unmistakably Murakami collection of seven stories about the lives of people trying to find their place in the world and reckoning with their pasts." —Buzzfeed"Elegant. . . . Vintage Murakami. . . . A glimpse into the strange worlds people invent by the always inventive Murakami." —Kirkus Reviews"Time and again in these seven stories, Murakami displays his singular genius. The stories in this collection find their power within the confines of common but momentous disturbances that linger on in memory." —Los Angeles Times"Superb. . . . The seven stories contained within Men Without Women cover the standard Murakami territory that has endeared him to readers around the world: cats, baseball, the Beatles and a surreal touch of noir." —SF Weekly"It's been a few years since we’ve gotten something new from Japan's master of magical realism, but this new seven-story collection draws us right back into his signature realm—one of lonely men with wandering imaginations, mysterious cats and subtle-yet-surreal narratives that reveal the supernatural layer operating beneath our everyday lives." —W Magazine "Murakami writes of complex things with his usual beguiling simplicity. . . . [Men Without Women] is Murakami at his whimsical, romantic best" —Financial Times"Devotees will find plenty of signature Murakami here." —The Guardian (UK)"A new Haruki Murakami book is always cause for celebration. . . . These stories are filled with all of the luminous, magical elements that make Murakami's writing so fascinating." —Bustle"Funny and surreal." —io9
