1Q84 by Book Summary:

The long-awaited magnum opus from Haruki Murakami, in which this revered and bestselling author gives us his hypnotically addictive, mind-bending ode to George Orwell's 1984. The year is 1984. Aomame is riding in a taxi on the expressway, in a hurry to carry out an assignment. Her work is not the kind that can be discussed in public. When they get tied up in traffic, the taxi driver suggests a bizarre 'proposal' to her. Having no other choice she agrees, but as a result of her actions she starts to feel as though she is gradually becoming detached from the real world. She has been on a top secret mission, and her next job leads her to encounter the superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange disturbance that develops over a literary prize. While Aomame and Tengo impact on each other in various ways, at times by accident and at times intentionally, they come closer and closer to meeting. Eventually the two of them notice that they are indispensable to each other. Is it possible for them to ever meet in the real world?

Vintage Murakami by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the greatest modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions. “Murakami’s bold willingness to go straight over the top is a signal indication of his genius. . . . A world-class writer who has both eyes open and takes big risks.” —The Washington Post Book World Not since Yukio Mishima and Yasunari Kawabata has a Japanese writer won the international acclaim enjoyed by Haruki Murakami. His genre-busting novels, short stories and reportage, which have been translated into 35 languages, meld the surreal and the hard-boiled, deadpan comedy and delicate introspection. Vintage Murakami includes the opening chapter of the international bestseller Norwegian Wood; “Lieutenant Mamiya’s Long Story: Parts I and II” from his monumental novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle; “Shizuko Akashi” from Underground, his non-fiction book on the Toyko subway attack of 1995; and the short stories “Barn Burning,” “Honeypie.” Also included, for the first time in book form, the short story, “Ice Man.”

Speak, Okinawa by Elizabeth Miki Brina Book Summary:

A “hauntingly beautiful memoir about family and identity” (NPR) and a young woman's journey to understanding her complicated parents—her mother an Okinawan war bride, her father a Vietnam veteran—and her own, fraught cultural heritage. Elizabeth's mother was working as a nightclub hostess on U.S.-occupied Okinawa when she met the American soldier who would become her husband. The language barrier and power imbalance that defined their early relationship followed them to the predominantly white, upstate New York suburb where they moved to raise their only daughter. There, Elizabeth grew up with the trappings of a typical American childhood and adolescence. Yet even though she felt almost no connection to her mother's distant home, she also felt out of place among her peers. Decades later, Elizabeth comes to recognize the shame and self-loathing that haunt both her and her mother, and attempts a form of reconciliation, not only to come to terms with the embattled dynamics of her family but also to reckon with the injustices that reverberate throughout the history of Okinawa and its people. Clear-eyed and profoundly humane, Speak, Okinawa is a startling accomplishment—a heartfelt exploration of identity, inheritance, forgiveness, and what it means to be an American.

1Q84. Första boken by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

Kan vi verkligen säga att världen existerar så som vi uppfattar den? Hur är världen egentligen skapad? Hur samverkar det som nu existerar med det förflutna? Och hur påverkar nuet framtiden? Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Aomame åker på motorvägen i en taxi. Hon har bråttom men fastnar i trafiken. Eftersom hon är försenad till ett viktigt och hemligt arbetsmöte får hon ett märkligt förslag av chauffören: att ta en trappa som leder ner från motorvägsbron. Hon tackar ja och kort därefter börjar hon känna sig frånkopplad världen utanför. I ett slag är hela hennes tillvaro förändrad och hon står snart inför grundaren av en religiös sekt. Tengo är en ung man som vill uppfylla sin dröm om att bli författare. En vän till honom, som knappast är en särskilt begåvad författare, börjar allt mer att styra hans liv när hon bestämmer sig för att ställa upp i en litterär tävling. Till Tengo påstår hon att den bygger på egna erfarenheter, ändå tycks ingenting stämma. Plötsligt är det som om någon drar undan mattan för det han alltid tagit för givet är sanning. På olika sätt möts Aomame och Tengo och de börjar sakta närma sig varandra. Det är som om de vore beroende av varandra. Men frågan är om det är möjligt för dem att någonsin mötas i den verkliga världen som de tror sig leva i. Kanske är det kärlek, eller så är det något som är mycket mer komplicerat än så. Det här är första delen i trilogin 1Q84.

After Dark by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

A short, sleek novel of encounters set in the witching hours of Tokyo between midnight and dawn, and every bit as gripping as Haruki Murakami’s masterworks The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. At its center are two sisters: Yuri, a fashion model sleeping her way into oblivion; and Mari, a young student soon led from solitary reading at an anonymous Denny’s into lives radically alien to her own: those of a jazz trombonist who claims they’ve met before; a burly female “love hotel” manager and her maidstaff; and a Chinese prostitute savagely brutalized by a businessman. These “night people” are haunted by secrets and needs that draw them together more powerfully than the differing circumstances that might keep them apart, and it soon becomes clear that Yuri’s slumber–mysteriously tied to the businessman plagued by the mark of his crime – will either restore or annihilate her. After Dark moves from mesmerizing drama to metaphysical speculation, interweaving time and space as well as memory and perspective into a seamless exploration of human agency – the interplay between self-expression and understanding, between the power of observation and the scope of compassion and love. Murakami’s trademark humor, psychological insight, and grasp of spirit and morality are here distilled with an extraordinary, harmonious mastery. “Eyes mark the shape of the city. Through the eyes of a high-flying night bird, we take in the scene from midair. In our broad sweep, the city looks like a single gigantic creature–or more, like a single collective entity created by many intertwining organisms. Countless arteries stretch to the ends of its elusive body, circulating a continuous supply of fresh blood cells, sending out new data and collecting the old, sending out new consumables and collecting the old, sending out new contradictions and collecting the old. To the rhythm of its pulsing, all parts of the body flicker and flare up and squirm. Midnight is approaching, and while the peak of activity has indeed passed, the basal metabolism that maintains life continues undiminished, producing the basso continuo of the city’s moan, a monotonous sound that neither rises nor falls but is pregnant with foreboding.” —from After Dark

The Islanders by Christopher Priest Book Summary:

A stunning literary SF novel from the multiple award winning Christopher Priest. A tale of murder, artistic rivalry and literary trickery; a Chinese puzzle of a novel where nothing is quite what it seems; a narrator whose agenda is artful and subtle; a narrative that pulls you in and plays an elegant game with you. The Dream Archipelago is a vast network of islands. The names of the islands are different depending on who you talk to, their very locations seem to twist and shift. Some islands have been sculpted into vast musical instruments, others are home to lethal creatures, others the playground for high society. Hot winds blow across the archipelago and a war fought between two distant continents is played out across its waters. THE ISLANDERS serves both as an untrustworthy but enticing guide to the islands, an intriguing, multi-layered tale of a murder and the suspect legacy of its appealing but definitely untrustworthy narrator.

Murakami T by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

The international literary icon opens his eclectic closet: Here are photographs of Murakami’s extensive and personal T-shirt collection, accompanied by essays that reveal a side of the writer rarely seen by the public. Many of Haruki Murakami's fans know about his massive vinyl record collection (10,000 albums!) and his obsession with running, but few have heard about a more intimate passion: his T-shirt collecting. In Murakami T, the famously reclusive novelist shows us his T-shirts—from concert shirts to never-worn whiskey-themed Ts, and from beloved bookstore swag to the shirt that inspired the iconic short story "Tony Takitani." These photographs are paired with short, frank essays that include Murakami's musings on the joy of drinking Guinness in local pubs across Ireland, the pleasure of eating a burger upon arrival in the United States, and Hawaiian surf culture in the 1980s. Together, these photographs and reflections reveal much about Murakami's multifaceted and wonderfully eccentric persona.

Haruki Murakami and the Search for Self-Therapy by Jonathan Dil Book Summary:

Haruki Murakami, a global literary phenomenon, has said that he started writing fiction as a means of self-therapy. What he has not discussed as much is what he needed self-therapy for. This book argues that by understanding more about why Murakami writes, and by linking this with the question of how he writes, readers can better understand what he writes. Murakami's fiction, in other words, can be read as a search for self-therapy. In five chapters which explore Murakami's fourteen novels to date, this book argues that there are four prominent therapeutic threads woven through Murakami's fiction that can be traced back to his personal traumas - most notably Murakami's falling out with his late father and the death of a former girlfriend – and which have also transcended them in significant ways as they have been transformed into literary fiction. The first thread looks at the way melancholia must be worked through for mourning to occur and healing to happen; the second thread looks at how symbolic acts of sacrifice can help to heal intergenerational trauma; the third thread looks at the way people with avoidant attachment styles can begin to open themselves up to love again; the fourth thread looks at how individuation can manifest as a response to nihilism. Meticulously researched and written with sensitivity, the result is a sophisticated exploration of Murakami's published novels as an evolving therapeutic project that will be of great value to all scholars of Japanese literature and culture.

Lightning Rods by Helen DeWitt Book Summary:

The long-awaited second novel by the author of “arguably the most exciting debut novel of the decade: The Last Samurai.” (Sam Anderson, New York). “All I want is to be a success. That’s all I ask.” Joe fails to sell a single set of the Encyclopedia Britannica in six months. Then fails to sell a single Electrolux and must eat 126 pieces of homemade pie, served up by his would-be customers who feel sorry for him. Holed up in his trailer, Joe finds an outlet for his frustrations in a series of ingenious sexual fantasies, and at last strikes gold. His brainstorm, Lightning Rods, Inc., will take Joe to the very top — and to the very heart of corporate insanity — with an outrageous solution to the spectre of sexual harassment in the modern office. An uproarious, hard-boiled modern fable of corporate life, sex, and race in America, Helen DeWitt’s Lightning Rods brims with the satiric energy of Nathanael West and the philosophic import of an Aristophanic comedy of ideas. Her wild yarn is second cousin to the spirit of Mel Brooks and the hilarious reality-blurring of Being John Malkovich. Dewitt continues to take the novel into new realms of storytelling — as the timeliness of Lightning Rods crosses over into timelessness.

The Drover's Wife by Leah Purcell Book Summary:

Deep in the heart of Australia’s high country, along an ancient, hidden track, lives Molly Johnson and her four surviving children, another on the way. Husband Joe is away months at a time droving livestock up north, leaving his family in the bush to fend for itself. Molly’s children are her world, and life is hard and precarious with only their dog, Alligator, and a shotgun for protection – but it can be harder when Joe’s around. At just twelve years of age Molly’s eldest son Danny is the true man of the house, determined to see his mother and siblings safe – from raging floodwaters, hunger and intruders, man and reptile. Danny is mature beyond his years, but there are some things no child should see. He knows more than most just what it takes to be a drover’s wife. One night under the moon’s watch, Molly has a visitor of a different kind – a black ‘story keeper’, Yadaka. He’s on the run from authorities in the nearby town, and exchanges kindness for shelter. Both know that justice in this nation caught between two worlds can be as brutal as its landscape. But in their short time together, Yadaka shows Molly a secret truth, and the strength to imagine a different path. Full of fury and power, Leah Purcell’s The Drover’s Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson is a brave reimagining of the Henry Lawson short story that has become an Australian classic. Brilliantly plotted, it is a compelling thriller of our pioneering past that confronts head-on issues of today: race, gender, violence and inheritance.

Brilliantly plotted, it is a compelling thriller of our pioneering past that confronts head-on issues of today: race, gender, violence and inheritance.

Mordecai by Charles Foran Book Summary:

Foran's book is IT: the definitive, detailed, intimate portrait of Mordecai Richler, the lion of Canadian literature, and the turbulent, changing times that nurtured him. It is also an extraordinary love story that lasted half a century. The first major biography with access to family letters and archives. Mordecai Richler was an outsized and outrageous novelist whose life reads like fiction. Mordecai Richler won multiple Governor General's Literary Awards, the Giller Prize, the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, among others, as well as many awards for his children's books. He also wrote Oscar-nominated screenplays. His influence was larger than life in Canada and abroad. In Mordecai, award-winning novelist and journalist Charlie Foran brings to the page the richness of Mordecai's life as young bohemian, irreverent writer, passionate and controversial Canadian, loyal friend and deeply romantic lover. He explores Mordecai's distraught childhood, and gives us the "portrait of a marriage" — the lifelong love affair with Florence, with Mordecai as beloved father of five. The portrait is alive and intimate — warts and all.

1Q84. Andra boken by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

Kan vi verkligen säga att världen existerar så som vi uppfattar den? Hur är världen egentligen skapad? Hur samverkar det som nu existerar med det förflutna? Och hur påverkar nuet framtiden? Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Aomame åker på motorvägen i en taxi. Hon har bråttom men fastnar i trafiken. Eftersom hon är försenad till ett viktigt och hemligt arbetsmöte får hon ett märkligt förslag av chauffören: att ta en trappa som leder ner från motorvägsbron. Hon tackar ja och kort därefter börjar hon känna sig frånkopplad världen utanför. I ett slag är hela hennes tillvaro förändrad och hon står snart inför grundaren av en religiös sekt. Tengo är en ung man som vill uppfylla sin dröm om att bli författare. En vän till honom, som knappast är en särskilt begåvad författare, börjar allt mer att styra hans liv när hon bestämmer sig för att ställa upp i en litterär tävling. Till Tengo påstår hon att den bygger på egna erfarenheter, ändå tycks ingenting stämma. Plötsligt är det som om någon drar undan mattan för det han alltid tagit för givet är sanning. På olika sätt möts Aomame och Tengo och de börjar sakta närma sig varandra. Det är som om de vore beroende av varandra. Men frågan är om det är möjligt för dem att någonsin mötas i den verkliga världen som de tror sig leva i. Kanske är det kärlek, eller så är det något som är mycket mer komplicerat än så. Det här är andra delen i trilogin 1Q84.

Third Class Superhero by Charles Yu Book Summary:

“A compulsively readable collection” of short fiction from the author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe (Publishers Weekly). With deadpan humor and originality, Charles Yu spins Kafkaesque tales of modern identity and insecurity in this whip-smart debut. In 401(k), a couple living in the Luxury Car Commercial subdivision are disappointed when their exotic vacation turns into a Life Insurance/Asset Management pitch. The author struggles to write the definitive biography of his mother in Autobiographical Raw Material Unsuitable for the Mining of Fiction. And would-be superhero Moisture Man must come to terms with the darkness in his heart. Throughout the collection, Yu’s characters run up against the limitations of their artificial story lines while tackling the terrifying aspects of existence: mothers, jobs, spouses, and perhaps most terrifying of all, the need to express feelings. Heartbreaking and hilarious, Third Class Superhero marked the debut of an author who has been a PEN award finalist, and whose novel How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe was named one of Time’s best books of the year. “The post-collegiate braininess of many of Yu’s stories is like the music of the Talking Heads, making the familiar seem off-kilter. . . . Takes a Kafkaesque turn in its comic examination of the essence of identity.” —Kirkus Reviews

1Q84 - Livro 2 by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

O Livro 1 revelou a existência do mundo de 1Q84. Algumas perguntas encontraram resposta. Outras permanecem em aberto: Quem é o Povo Pequeno? Como farão esses seres para abrir caminho até ao mundo real? Existirão mesmo?, como sugere Fuka-Eri. Chegarão Aomame e Tengos a reencontrar-se? «Há coisas neste mundo que é melhor nem saber», como diz o sinistro Ushikawa. Em todo o caso, o destino dos heróis de 1Q84 está em marcha. No céu, distinguem-se nitidamente duas luas. Não é uma ilusão. Murakami descreve aqui um universo singular, que absorve, que imita a realidade, e a faz sua. A narrativa decorre em dois mundos que se cruzam, qual deles o mais real e o mais fascinante - o de 1984 e o de 1Q84. A perturbante história de um amor adiado, recortada num cenário marcado pelo desencanto e pela violência. Uma fábula sobre os dilemas do mundo contemporâneo. Murakami retrata o mal-estar da sociedade japonesa que se esconde por debaixo de uma aparente quietude.

The Future of the World by Tiffany Eberle Kriner Book Summary:

Kriner tells the story of how readers participate in the future of the word, the eschatology of texts. If texts have a future in the kingdom of God, then readers’ engagements with them—everything from preservation and utterance to translation, criticism, and call and response—can cultivate those futures in the love of the Trinity. Kriner explores how the fallenness and failures of texts, alongside readers’ own failures, ultimately point to reading as a posture of reconciliation, in which reader and text meet in the Maranatha of all text.

Murakami Haruki and Our Years of Pilgrimage by Gitte Marianne Hansen,Michael Tsang Book Summary:

This book is a timely and expansive volume on Murakami Haruki, arguably Japan's most high-profile contemporary writer.

A History of European Literature by Walter Cohen Book Summary:

Walter Cohen argues that the history of European literature and each of its standard periods can be illuminated by comparative consideration of the different literary languages within Europe and by the ties of European literature to world literature. World literature is marked by recurrent, systematic features, outcomes of the way that language and literature are at once the products of major change and its agents. Cohen tracks these features from ancient times to the present, distinguishing five main overlapping stages. Within that framework, he shows that European literatures ongoing internal and external relationships are most visible at the level of form rather than of thematic statement or mimetic representation. European literature emerges from world literature before the birth of Europe — during antiquity, whose Classical languages are the heirs to the complex heritage of Afro-Eurasia. This legacy is later transmitted by Latin to the various vernaculars. The uniqueness of the process lies in the gradual displacement of the learned language by the vernacular, long dominated by Romance literatures. That development subsequently informs the second crucial differentiating dimension of European literature: the multicontinental expansion of its languages and characteristic genres, especially the novel, beginning in the Renaissance. This expansion ultimately results in the reintegration of European literature into world literature and thus in the creation of todays global literary system. The distinctiveness of European literature is to be found in these interrelated trajectories.

1Q84 Bog 3 by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

Oktober – December 1984 "Noget sparkede i det yderste af hans bevidsthed. Og når noget sparkede i det yderste af hans bevidsthed, var han nødt til at finde ud af, hvad det var." I allerførste kapitel af denne tredje og afsluttende bog i Haruki Murakamis romanværk '1Q84' møder vi den umanerligt grimme og meget insisterende privatdetektiv Hr. Ushikawa. Hans næse har aldrig fejlet noget, og når først han er på sporet, finder han altid frem til sit bytte. Men da han er en slange, må han gøre det i sit eget tempo. De to andre hovedpersoner i dette store værk, Tengo, en ensom mand med forfatterdrømme, og Aomame, en ung kvinde på en livsfarlig mission, befinder sig meget langt fra hinanden. De er begge to truet af kræfter, de ikke forstår omfanget af, og de er begge to forfulgt af mennesker, de ikke kender. Mens de leder efter hinanden fra hver sit sted, lærer de mere og mere om den forskudte verden, de er forsvundet ind i, men vil de lære nok til at overliste deres forfølgere? Og vil de finde hinanden, før det er for sent. '1Q84' udspiller sig i løbet af skæbneåret 1984. Og hvis vi troede, at menneskeheden var kommet helskindet gennem dette skelsættende Orwell-år, så må vi tro om igen.

De er begge to truet af kræfter, de ikke forstår omfanget af, og de er begge to forfulgt af mennesker, de ikke kender. Mens de leder efter hinanden fra hver sit sted, lærer de mere og mere om den forskudte verden, de er forsvundet ind i, men vil de lære nok til at overliste deres forfølgere? Og vil de finde hinanden, før det er for sent. '1Q84' udspiller sig i løbet af skæbneåret 1984. Og hvis vi troede, at menneskeheden var kommet helskindet gennem dette skelsættende Orwell-år, så må vi tro om igen.

The Book of Tokyo by Hideo Furukawa,Kaori Ekuni,Mitsuyo Kakuta,Banana Yoshimoto,Toshiyuki Horie,Nao-Cola Yamazaki,Hitomi Kanehara,Osamu Hashimoto,Hiromi Kawakami,Shuichi Yoshida Book Summary:

A shape-shifter arrives at Tokyo harbour in human form, set to embark on an unstoppable rampage through the city’s train network… A young woman is accompanied home one night by a reclusive student, and finds herself lured into a flat full of eerie Egyptian artefacts… A man suspects his young wife’s obsession with picnicking every weekend in the city’s parks hides a darker motive… At first, Tokyo appears in these stories as it does to many outsiders: a city of bewildering scale, awe-inspiring modernity, peculiar rules, unknowable secrets and, to some extent, danger. Characters observe their fellow citizens from afar, hesitant to stray from their daily routines to engage with them. But Tokyo being the city it is, random encounters inevitably take place – a naïve book collector, mistaken for a French speaker, is drawn into a world he never knew existed; a woman seeking psychiatric help finds herself in a taxi with an older man wanting to share his own peculiar revelations; a depressed divorcee accepts an unexpected lunch invitation to try Thai food for the very first time… The result in each story is a small but crucial change in perspective, a sampling of the unexpected yet simple pleasure of other people’s company. As one character puts it, ‘The world is full of delicious things, you know.’

The Wanderers by Meg Howrey Book Summary:

A brilliantly inventive novel about three astronauts training for the first-ever mission to Mars, an experience that will push the boundary between real and unreal, test their relationships, and leave each of them—and their families—changed forever. “A transcendent, cross-cultural, and cross planetary journey into the mysteries of space and self....Howrey’s expansive vision left me awestruck.”—Ruth Ozeki “Howrey's exquisite novel demonstrates that the final frontier may not be space after all.”—J. Ryan Stradal In an age of space exploration, we search to find ourselves. In four years, aerospace giant Prime Space will put the first humans on Mars. Helen Kane, Yoshihiro Tanaka, and Sergei Kuznetsov must prove they’re the crew for the historic voyage by spending seventeen months in the most realistic simulation ever created. Constantly observed by Prime Space’s team of "Obbers," Helen, Yoshi, and Sergei must appear ever in control. But as their surreal pantomime progresses, each soon realizes that the complications of inner space are no less fraught than those of outer space. The borders between what is real and unreal begin to blur, and each astronaut is forced to confront demons past and present, even as they struggle to navigate their increasingly claustrophobic quarters—and each other. Astonishingly imaginative, tenderly comedic, and unerringly wise, The Wanderers explores the differences between those who go and those who stay, telling a story about the desire behind all exploration: the longing for discovery and the great search to understand the human heart.

Главная литературная сенсация нового века, «магнум-опус прославленного мастера» и «обязательное чтение для любого, кто хочет разобраться в японской культуре наших дней», по выражению критиков. Действие книги происходит не столько в тысяча девятьсот восемьдесят четвертом году, сколько в тысяча невестьсот восемьдесят четвертом, в мире, где некоторые видят на небе две луны, где ключом к вечной любви служит Симфониетта Яначека, где полицейских после всколыхнувшей всю страну перестрелки с сектантами вооружили автоматическими пистолетами взамен револьверов, где LittlePeople – Маленький Народец – выходят изо рта мертвой козы и плетут Воздушный Кокон.

The Bookseller's Tale by Martin Latham Book Summary:

A SPECTATOR AND EVENING STANDARD BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020 'A joy. Each chapter instantly became my favourite' David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas 'Wonderful' Lucy Mangan 'The right book has a neverendingness, and so does the right bookshop.' This is the story of our love affair with books, whether we arrange them on our shelves, inhale their smell, scrawl in their margins or just curl up with them in bed. Taking us on a journey through comfort reads, street book stalls, mythical libraries, itinerant pedlars, radical pamphleteers, extraordinary bookshop customers and fanatical collectors, Canterbury bookseller Martin Latham uncovers the curious history of our book obsession - and his own. Part cultural history, part literary love letter and part reluctant memoir, this is the tale of one bookseller and many, many books. 'If ferreting through bookshops is your idea of heaven, you'll get the same pleasure from this treasure trove of a book' Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

Yesterday's Tomorrows by Pere Gallardo,Elizabeth Russell Book Summary:

2012 was a year of financial crises and ecological disasters, of endings and forebodings. The world did not end on December 21st as the Mayan calendar predicted, but became the stage for new beginnings, utopian communities, protest groups and solidarity movements. The essays in this book form an intertextual space for negotiating meaningful facts and fictions with an aim to understanding the present. Discussions focus on utopia and dystopia from literature and film, not only within the framework of science fiction but also critical theory, gender politics and social sciences. The authors of these essays are international academics whose interest lies in utopian studies and who attended the 13th International Conference of Utopian Studies, “The Shape of Things to Come”, held in Tarragona, Spain, in 2012.

1Q84. Tredje boken by Haruki Murakami Book Summary:

1Q84. Tredje boken är fortsättningen på Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin. Den utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse. Oktober-december 1984. Ushikawa är en erfaren och nitisk utredare som med sitt tålamod och rationella tillvägagångssätt kan spåra nästan vem som helst. När han får i uppdrag att leta rätt på den försvunna Aomame går han sin egen väg och blir allt djupare indragen i den egensinniga och oförutsägbara värld som är 1Q84. Under tiden dras Tengo och Aomame genom osynliga trådar allt närmare varandra, utan att riktigt förstå vad det är som pågår. De två månarna på himlen utövar ett starkt inflytande över dem och tycks styra deras tankar och rörelser. Den magiska men kortvariga beröring de en gång upplevde som barn är efter tjugo år på väg att utveckla ett alldeles eget liv. Murakami blandar Raymond Chandler med Kafka och Alice i Underlandet till någonting helt annorlunda som förnyar romankonsten liksom hos Thomas Pynchon och Don DeLillo fast kanske ännu mer egensinnigt än så. Man får hoppas att han inte anses vara för lekfull för att få Nobelpriset. Johan Dahlbäck, GP

How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe (Enhanced Edition) by Charles Yu Book Summary:

This enhanced eBook includes video, audio, photographic, and linked content, as well as a bonus short story. Hear TAMMY talk. Learn the origins of Minor Universe 31. See the TM-31. Take a trip in it. Photos and illustrations appear as hyperlinked endnotes. Video and audio are embedded directly in text. *Video and audio may not play on all readers. Check your user manual for details. National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Award winner Charles Yu delivers his debut novel, a razor-sharp, ridiculously funny, and utterly touching story of a son searching for his father . . . through quantum space–time. Minor Universe 31 is a vast story-space on the outskirts of fiction, where paradox fluctuates like the stock market, lonely sexbots beckon failed protagonists, and time travel is serious business. Every day, people get into time machines and try to do the one thing they should never do: change the past. That’s where Charles Yu, time travel technician—part counselor, part gadget repair man—steps in. He helps save people from themselves. Literally. When he’s not taking client calls or consoling his boss, Phil, who could really use an upgrade, Yu visits his mother (stuck in a one-hour cycle of time, she makes dinner over and over and over) and searches for his father, who invented time travel and then vanished. Accompanied by TAMMY, an operating system with low self-esteem, and Ed, a nonexistent but ontologically valid dog, Yu sets out, and back, and beyond, in order to find the one day where he and his father can meet in memory. He learns that the key may be found in a book he got from his future self. It’s called How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, and he’s the author. And somewhere inside it is the information that could help him—in fact it may even save his life. Wildly new and adventurous, Yu’s debut is certain to send shock waves of wonder through literary space–time.
