    Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

    Combine an offbeat cast of characters with Murakami's idiosyncratic prose, and the result is the remarkable story Dance Dance Dance: high-class call girls billed to MasterCard, a psychic 13-year-old dropout has a passion for talking heads, and meet a hunky matinee idol doomed to play dentists and teachers. Don’t forget the one-armed beach-combing poet, an uptight hotel clerk and one very bemused narrator caught in the web of advanced capitalist mayhem.

    Information is everything in "Hard-Boiled Wonderland". A specialist encrypter is attacked by thugs with orders from an unknown source, is chased by invisible predators, and dates an insatiably hungry librarian who never puts on weight. In "The End of the World" a new arrival is learning his role as dream-reader. But there is something eerily disquieting about the changeless nature of the town and its fable-like inhabitants. Told in alternate chapters, the two stories converge and combine.

    Alors que jusque-là je marchais normalement sur ce que je pensais être mon propre chemin, voilà que soudain celui-ci a disparu sous mes pas, et c'est comme si j'avançais simplement dans un espace vide sans connaître de direction, sans plus aucune sensation. Une jeune fille a disparu. Une jeune fille dont le narrateur avait entrepris de faire le portrait. Une jeune fille aux yeux comme une flamme gelée. Une jeune fille qui l'intrigue et qui pourrait être liée à Menshiki. Il va rendre visite au vieux peintre Tomohiko Amada. Là, dans la chambre d'hôpital, apparaît le Commandeur. Le Commandeur est prêt à offrir sa vie pour que la jeune fille soit retrouvée.

Musique, solitude, rêve et mélancolie, le maître au sommet de son art. "Ce que je veux aborder avec ce recueil ? En un mot, l'isolement, et ses conséquences émotionnelles." "Des hommes sans femmes" en est l'illustration concrète.
