Finely crafted in series as the previous Kafka on the Shore (Editor’s Choice), Murakami’s tender and nostalgic NORWEGIAN WOOD by The Folio Society is the first illustrated version I had the immense privilege to put my visual feeling in it. Anyone who has had a heartbreaking, pristine love, this story is waiting for you.
Kafka on the Shore
Murakami revisits the emotionally charged experience of creating 15-year-old Kafka’s journey from confused runaway to enlightened sage. "One of Folio’s finest editions to date".
