Coming this October: Killing Commendatore, the much-anticipated new novel from Haruki Murakami The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force—and one of Haruki Murakami’s most acclaimed and beloved novels. In a Tokyo suburb, a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife’s missing cat—and then for his wife as well—in a netherworld beneath the city’s placid surface. As these searches intersect, he encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists. Gripping, prophetic, and suffused with comedy and menace, this is an astonishingly imaginative detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets from Japan’s forgotten campaign in Manchuria during World War II.

Vintage Fantasy is just one of ten Vintage Classic Twins to collect. Each twin consists of two books: a specially designed limited edition of one modern classic title and one established classic work. The books in each pair have been carefully selected to provide a thought-provoking combination. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: Alice is one of the most beloved characters of English writing. A bright and inquisitive child, one boring summer afternoon she follows a white rabbit down a rabbit-hole. At the bottom she finds herself in a bizarre world full of strange creatures, and attends a very strange tea party and croquet match. This immensely witty and unique story mixes satire and puzzles, comedy and anxiety, to provide an astute depiction of the experience of childhood. The Wind-up Bird Chronicle: Toru Okada's cat has disappeared and this has unsettled his wife, who is herself growing more distant every day. Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has started receiving. As this compelling story unfolds, the tidy suburban realities of Okada's vague and blameless life are turned inside out, and he embarks on a bizarre journey, guided by a succession of characters, each with a tale to tell.

In this thesis, I examine two novels that comprise the bookends of what has been referred to as the "commitment" stage in Haruki Murakami's career: The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle (1998), which is the novel that initially launched his advocacy for commitment, and 1Q84 (2011), his most recently translated novel in English. While Murakami's earlier writings seemed to argue that the cohesive self is impossible because of the difficulty in negotiation the multifaceted (and often competing) constraints of the binary structures of East/West, traditional/modern, urban/rural, masculine/feminine, and gay/straight, these two texts mark a shift in the author's oeuvre towards attempting to engage with the world and those in it at all costs. Throughout this thesis, I argue that Murakami's advocacy for commitment is evident in the way that he eschews and subverts the aforementioned dualities, primarily through his use of queer notions of time and space. Because queer frameworks are also heavily invested in disrupting the distinctions of the binaries, my intervention into Murakami's work relies on queer theories of time, space, sexual embodiment, and Asian subjectivity. Ultimately, I discover that as Murakami progresses through the commitment stage of his career, he steers his characters through time and space that is progressively more liminal and queer, and as a result, his characters come closer and closer to achieving cohesive identities and connections to one another.

REVISED AND UPDATED WITH NEW MATERIAL ON 1Q84 As a young man, Haruki Murakami played records and mixed drinks at his Tokyo Jazz club, Peter Cat, then wrote at the kitchen table until the sun came up. He loves music of all kinds - jazz, classical, folk, rock - and has more than six thousand records at home. And when he writes, his words have a music all their own, much of it learned from jazz. Jay Rubin, a self-confessed fan, has written a book for other fans who want to know more about this reclusive writer. He reveals the autobiographical elements in Murakami's fiction, and explains how he developed a distinctive new style in Japanese writing. In tracing Murakami's career, he uses interviews he conducted with the author between 1993 and 2001, and draws on insights and observations gathered from over ten years of collaborating with Murakami on translations of his works.
