Haruki Murakami Norwegian Wood
He hated seeing me read when I was over because he felt like it took time away from him, and since time was so precious and rare in his line of work medicine , watching me read annoyed him a lot. Honestly, I felt the same way about how my boyfriend was treating our relationship at the time, but I was too young and blindly committed to leave.
We went to dinner at Blue Ribbon in Park Slope, ate three hundred dollars worth of food, and fought in the cab on our way back to the apartment over the difference between smoked and regular salmon. I remember a couple of stories from that book, which I had picked up and read whenever I was alone at his apartment, waiting for him to come home from class or work.
Both the film and story are terrific; they examine the effects of human solitude. They were written over the previous summer while I was vacationing with him in Korea. I immediately left the apartment, flagged down a cab and car-pooled back to my apartment with a crazy white lady who kept trying to have a conversation with me about the weather and the MTA strike while I was busy crying.
It was December, and my anthropology final exam was canceled due to the strike. The cab ride from Flatbush Avenue to Avenue A cost me twenty dollars.
That same night, my boyfriend suggested that we meet at the Brooklyn Bridge. When we did, we were surrounded by a crowd of commuters.
We talked about our relationship but never came to any satisfying resolution. The next and last book I read by Murakami is After the Quake.
I read the whole thing in bed. The only thing I remember from that book is a giant frog fighting a giant worm. They both end up dead. Over the two-year relationship with my Murakami-fan boyfriend, I was constantly reading books that ran on themes of human isolation and mentally unstable young women, whose conditions often manifested themselves in some sort of sexual incapacity.
I often related to the characters by feeling equally hollowed out, depressed and psychotic myself, but obviously not because of societal problems that occur in a Japanese system.
Rather, it had to do with being in a troubled relationship, and the bad feelings were amplified by reading books about the depressed, the maniacal and the clinically insane. It led me to a severe disconnect from reality and into a state of mental isolation.

During my recent weeklong trip to Korea, I met with a friend an English professor and fluent speaker of Japanese who has never read a book by Murakami and we had a huge Sunday brunch at my favorite Tibetan restaurant in Myeong-dong. I said that he looks like a very lonely man, and my friend agreed. Four years since my last Murakami book, I now see his books being read everywhere by everyone.
His books have become a household item like a fork or spatula; they are on bookshelves of every home I visit. Loneliness is a common feeling, and equal to our desire to feel unique. Loneliness is common, as is craving love and connection, as are relationships, as is Murakami.
I think that human isolation and loneliness are plain facts. At this point, writing and reading about them again and again to emphasize their existence seem like a trite effort. Two summers ago, I sold all my Murakami books at the Strand bookstore and got a dollar in return for each.
