Two of the best living novelists have new books out. David Mitchell and Haruki Murakami are both novelists that are able to entertain and deal in serious themes of the human condition.
Here is an excellent review of Mitchell’s new novel The Bone Clocks in The Atlantic:
Here is a review of Murakami’s new novel, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, by rock n roll legend Patti Smith:
I intend to read both of these novels. I highly recommend Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas, please god don’t see the movie, although all of his works are worth checking out. My favorite Murakami books are The Wind-up Bird Chronicle and Kafka On the Shore, although again almost all of his work is excellent.
