🎶 “I think good music is something that heals people and fires up your kindness,” Haruki Murakami said.

📖 Music is an important motive in Murakami's stories. A passionate listener and music collector, he has written many books on the subject ("Absolutely on Music"), adding some fabulous recommendations to each of his works.

✨ Haruki Murakami, now 72, began writing while working in a jazz bar in Tokyo. "Hear the Wind Sing" (Kaze no uta o kike) is the work with which he debuted in 1979. The romantic story of 1987, "Norwegian Wood" (Noruwei no mori) became his first bestseller, which turned him into a young star. The latest collection of short stories (8 stories) "First Person Singular" (Ichininshō Tansū) appeared in Japan last year.
