I selected this book for my book club. I loved this book, but then again I am a huge Murakami fan. It's definitely on par with Kafka on the Shore and the Wind-up Bird Chronicle.
The opinion of my book club, which most of which had never read any Murakami, was that there was too much gratuitous sex. I, of course, disagree- sex is an integral part of both the human condition, which Murakami is always after.
Timothy Monger at AADL
Local musician Timothy Monger is best known for his work with Michigan rock group Great Lakes Myth Society, but at this very special musical performance he’ll be joined by pianist and accordionist Patrick Herek and some stars of AADL’s Music Tools Collection. Watch as he plays some of his hits, and tweaks some others with guitar pedals and other items from our circulating collection, then check one out yourself to try it! The performance will take place on Friday, January 30 at 7 pm at the Downtown Library.
