Description
In the spring of 1978, a young Haruki Murakami sat down at his kitchen table and began to write. The result: two remarkable short novels-- Hear the Wind Sing  and  Pinball, 1973 --that launched the career of one of the most acclaimed authors of our time. These powerful, at times surreal, works about two young men coming of age--the unnamed narrator and his friend the Rat--are stories of loneliness, obsession, and eroticism. They bear all the hallmarks of Murakami's later books, and form the first two-thirds, with  A Wild Sheep Chase , of the trilogy of the Rat.  Widely available in English for the first time ever, newly translated, and featuring a new introduction by Murakami himself,  Wind/Pinball  gives us a fascinating insight into a great writer's beginnings.

Notes

General Note
"The book is a completely new translation (by Ted Goossen) of Haruki Murakami's novels HEAR THE WIND SING (originally published in Japan as Kaze no uta o kike in 1979) and PINBALL, 1973 (originally published in Japan as 1973 nen no pinbōru in 1980). Knopf is publishing them together as "WIND/PINBALL" in hardcover in August 2015"
Description
"The debut short novels--nearly thirty years out of print-- by the internationally acclaimed writer, newly retranslated and in one English-language volume for the first time, with a new introduction by the author. These first major works of fiction by Haruki Murakami center on two young men--an unnamed narrator and his friend and former roommate, the Rat. Powerful, at times surreal, stories of loneliness, obsession, and eroticism, these novellas bear all the hallmarks of Murakami's later books, giving us a fascinating insight into a great writer's beginnings, and are remarkable works of fiction in their own right. Here too is an exclusive essay by Murakami in which he explores and explains his decision to become a writer. Prequels to the much-beloved classics A Wild Sheep Chase and Dance Dance Dance, these early works are essential reading for Murakami completists and contemporary fiction lovers alike"--,Provided by publisher.
