From Russia with Love


Finished Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart tonight. It's a sad, sweet little book that has all the trappings of Murakami: a lonely, bookwormy narrator, disappearing women, dreamlike plotting, oblique philosophical allegory and unrequited love -- all the stuff that makes me get weepy eyed.

I'm gearing up for his new one, which I'm wait listed for at the library.
