A perfect tequila shot. An apt teaser. A pitch perfect click. That’s just how the new short story from the Murakami land feels like. Capturing our attention, upping the stakes, leaving us thinking, never closing the possibilities.

The short story is about a chance encounter of a traveller (who is also a writer) with a monkey. And if you know our Murakami-san, you shall know the monkey shall be anything but ordinary. Go, read about their conversation over a rainy, tipsy night in a quaint town in Japan where the music meets depth, ruminations caress surrealism. A tale where desires are met on the trembling bed of names and memories bring warmth despite their failed fates.


A read perfect with an afternoon tea or a late night wine. Or let’s say sometime in between because that’s just how Haruki Murakami goes – effortlessly overlapping timelines.⠀
