#4 South of the Border, West of the Sun

Murakami transforms loneliness into an exploration of past romance, memories and stolen moments. It’s a wise and mysterious tale of a successful man, wanting for nothing, but experiencing an ongoing dissatisfaction with what he feels is the inauthenticity of his happiness. 

Murakami, as with many of his books, reminds us that periods of solitude are perfect for contemplation and addressing one’s internal narratives.  He weaves mystery and the unusual into the mundane moments of everyday life.
