Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A mindbending new collection of short stories from the unique, internationally acclaimed author of Norwegian Wood and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle.

The eight masterly stories in this new collection are all told in the first person by a classic Murakami narrator. From nostalgic memories of youth, meditations on music and an ardent love of baseball to dreamlike scenarios, an encounter with a talking monkey and invented jazz albums, together these stories challenge the boundaries between our minds and the exterior world. Occasionally, a narrator who may or may not be Murakami himself is present. Is it memoir or fiction? The listener decides. 

Philosophical and mysterious, the stories in First Person Singular all touch beautifully on love and solitude, childhood and memory...all with a signature Murakami twist.

Struggled with the narrator

Found it very difficult to focus because the of the narration. Previous narrators were fabulous, why change them for a non- native English speaker?

On top of that, discovered that some of my Murakami books vanished from my library! I love his writing and had bought all of his work, but at least 5 titles are no longer in my library.

There must have been a change of some sorts because they are still available for purchase, but by Pinguin, with different covers.

If I buy them again what's my guarantee that they'll stay on Audible and not be replaced and vanish again? Did this happen to anyone else?
