Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman
Published on Tuesday, August 21, 2012 - 3:39pm
Join the Georgetown Book Club in our first discussion of short stories in years!
For our September meeting, we will be discussing Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, a collection of 24 stories by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. These stories span his career in the '80s, '90s, and early 2000s.
Murakami's stories are all unique and dreamlike, and the perfect length to read one per day on your lunch break. As he writes in the introduction to this carefully curated collection: "I find writing novels a challenge, writing stories a joy. If writing novels is like planting a forest, then writing short stories is more like planting a garden."
Please join us on Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. to discuss this collection.
