More about the book (courtesy of Wikpedia):

For this novel, Murakami received the Yomiuri Literary Award, which was awarded
to him by one of his harshest former critics, Oe Kenzaburo

Plot summary: The novel is about a low-key unemployed man, Toru Okada, whose cat
runs away. A chain of events follow that prove that his seemingly mundane boring
life is much more complicated than it appears.

After discussing the book, we’ll pick another to read next month!  Fiction and
non-fiction are options, as long at the work is available in English and relates
to Japan.
