Title: Men Without Women

Unlike Murakami's other stories/books ,the title tells all. This is a collection of 7 stories literally about men without women, but also heartbreak. Murakami throws machismo to the wind as he explores debilitating, and at times fatalistic heartbreak from the male perspective. These stories are also about an interesting meditation on the modern heteronormative relationship, and what exactly constitutes one. Fans of Murakami will recognize the author's typical use of magical realism - just in a more digestible short format. For the curious newbie to Murakami, this might be the perfect way to ease your way in!
