Norwegian Wood By Haruki Murakami
Norwegian Wood is a 1987 novel by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. The novel is a nostalgic story of loss and burgeoning sexuality. It’s informed from the first-person perspective of Toru Watanabe, who appears to be like again on his days as a university pupil residing in Tokyo.
When he hears her favorite Beatles tune, Toru Watanabe remembers his past love Naoko, the girlfriend of his greatest pal Kizuki. Instantly he’s transported again nearly twenty years to his pupil days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, informal intercourse, ardour, loss and need – to a time when an impetuous younger lady known as Midori marches into his life and he has to decide on between the longer term and the previous.
