AFTER THE QUAKE (MURAKAMI, HARUKI)

The six stories in Haruki Murakami's mesmerizing collection are set at the time of the catastrophic 1995 Kobe earthquake, when Japan became brutally aware of the fragility of its daily existence. But the upheavals that afflict Murakami's characters are even deeper and more mysterious, emanating from a place where the human meets the inhuman. An electronics salesman who has been abruptly deserted by his wife agrees to deliver an enigmatic packageand is rewarded with a glimpse of his true nature. A man who has been raised to view himself as the son of God pursues a stranger who may or may not be his human father. A mild-mannered collection agent receives a visit from a giant talking frog who enlists his help in saving Tokyo from destruction. As haunting as dreams, as potent as oracles, the stories in After the Quake are further proof that Murakami is one of the most visionary writers at work today.

AFTER DARK LECTURA PLUS (MURAKAMI, HARUKI)

S'acosta la mitjanit en un restaurant desangelat que obre tota la nit; la Mari beu un cafè a poc a poc i llegeix una novel·la. Només interromp la lectura per veure com un jove s'asseu a la seva taula: és en Takahashi, un amic de la seva germana que toca en un grup de jazz i l'ha reconeguda. Tots dos han perdut l'últim tren i han de passar la nit fora de casa: en Takahashi assajarà fins que surti el sol, i a la Mari ja li està bé seure al bar, llegir, fumar i beure cafè fins que surti el primer tren del matí. A casa, la germana de la Mari, l'Eri, dorm profundament des de fa dos mesos, talment una bella dorment. A fora, les llums de neó il·luminen la nit i en les pauses de les converses es palpa l'ànim boirós de l'insomni. És de nit i les possibilitats són infinites.
