About the book: 

You've just passed someone on the street who could be the love of your life, the person you're destined for - what do you do? In Murakami's world, you tell them a story. The five weird and wonderful tales collected here each unlock the many-tongued language of desire, whether it takes the form of hunger, lust, sudden infatuation or the secret longings of the heart. Selected from Haruki's Murakami's short story collections: The Elephant Vanishes , Blind Willow Sleeping Woman, Men Without Women.

VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS. Also in the Vintage Minis series: Love  by Jeanette Winterson; Psychedelics  by Aldous Huxley; Eating  by Nigella Lawson; and Summer  by Laurie Lee.
