Welcome to Day 12 of my 2020 Book Spotlight Countdown! For more information about this series, please read my introductory post here. Today, I’m celebrating After Dark by Haruki Murakami!
13th of 2020
A novella more than a novel, After Dark brings the reader into the beating heart of Tokyo. Two parallel stories unfold through these pages, both as etheral as the other. While Eri sleeps and sleeps, unable to break free of her slumber, her sister Mari is roaming the streets of Tokyo at night. The narrator-character draws the reader deeper and deeper into the narrative as the mystery unfolds.
If you like magical realism, or atmospheric novels, this might be for you.
