About this book
A triangular love story about a twenty-two year-old who falls for a woman seventeen years her senior, and her best friend K. who longs to tell her he love her. Murakami's previous novels include "Norwegian Wood" and "Underground".
Sumire is in love with a woman seventeen years her senior. But whereas Miu is glamorous and successful, Sumire is an aspiring writer who dresses in an oversized second-hand coat and heavy boots like a character in a Kerouac novel. Sumire spends hours on the phone talking to her best friend K about the big questions in life.
