If you�re the sort of guy who raids the refrigerators of silent kitchens at three o�clock in the morning, you can only write accordingly.

That�s who I am.


Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973 are Haruki Murakami�s earliest novels. They follow the fortunes of the narrator and his friend, known only by his nickname, the Rat. In Hear the Wind Sing the narrator is home from college. He spends his time drinking beer and smoking in J�s Bar with the Rat, listening to the radio, thinking about writing and the women he has slept with, and pursuing a relationship with a girl with nine fingers.

Three years later, in Pinball, 1973, he has moved to Tokyo to work as a translator and live with indistinguishable twin girls, but the Rat has remained behind. The narrator finds himself haunted by memories of a past relationship but also by his short-lived obsession with playing pinball in J�s Bar. This sends him on a quest to find the exact model of pinball machine he used to enjoy so much.
