Day 5 of seven books that changed my life – sent this way to you by the very dear Jen Webb.
Today is HARUKI MURAKAMI day! Mainly because I can’t choose a favourite book. Is it Sputnik Sweetheart that confirmed my dislike of the Ferris wheel? Or Kafka on the Shore who still haunts me today about a decade after I read it. Or Hard Boiled Wonderland? I cannot choose. I love his darkness but also the very wonderful talking cat dialogues, the landscapes the strangeness of the world through his eyes.

Each book is like a glittering storm of familiar dust dancing through the darkness, exquisite jewellery to adorn the mind.
