A special movie-tie in edition for the long-awaited film release based on this beloved novel by Haruki Murakami: the story of one college student's romantic coming-of-age, a journey to that distant place of a young man's first, hopeless, and heroic love.

Toru, a quiet and preternaturally serious young college student in Tokyo, is devoted to Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman, but their mutual passion is marked by the tragic death of their best friend years before. Toru begins to adapt to campus life and the loneliness and isolation he faces there, but Naoko finds the pressures and responsibilities of life unbearable. As she retreats further into her own world, Toru finds himself reaching out to others and drawn to a fiercely independent and sexually liberated young woman.

“A masterly novel. . . . Norwegian Wood bears the unmistakable marks of Murakami’s hand.” —The New York Times Book Review

Norwegian Wood not only points to but manifests the author’s genius.” —Chicago Tribune

“A treat. . . . Murakami captures the heartbeat of his generation and draws the reader in so completely you mourn when the story is done.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Vintage Murakami [and] easily the most erotic of [his] novels.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review
