Killing Commendatore by Murakami Haruki

Review by Beau Waycott

Breaking from first-person narration for the first time in almost ten years, Murakami Haruki’s Killing Commendatore is an epic novel that fails to capture the wry poignance and fully immersive settings of his earlier works.

If Cats Disappeared From The World by Kawamura Genki

Review by Morgane Chinal-Dargent

This novel is a smart yet deep reflexion over life, love and the capacity to let go of what is not truly necessary to give meaning to our existences.

The Woman in the Dunes by Abe Kobo

The Woman in the Dunes by Abe Kobo

Review by George Mullins

Abe purposefully encourages readers to seek a profusion of interpretations when attempting to comprehend the story’s highly profound and impactful climax. The Woman in the Dunes is a deeply thought-provoking story, which has not lost its relevance to the contemporary world.
