The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is one of those books that I've read but for whatever reason can't remember very well... but I'd love to revisit it one of these days. If you're also a fan of Kafka (or even if you're not!) you might enjoy Murakami's short story 'Samsa in Love': http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2013/10/28/samsa-in-love And I'm glad to hear these posts are useful - thanks, Sera! :)
