Japanese writer Haruki Murakami is recognized already as one of the foremost masters of postmodern literature. This 928-page novel might be his magnum opus. Its odd title plays on the Japanese pronunciation of 1984 and thus on the title of George Orwell's novel, to which it is a homage. A Japanese reviewer described it as "a complex and surreal narrative [which] shifts back and forth between tales of two characters, a man and a woman, who are searching for each other." Very little about 1Q84 is predictable; the female narrator is an assassin and the male is an unpublished writer who has agreed to rewrite a manuscript which may or may not have been written by a teenager who may or may not be dyslexic. Encoded within the puzzles of this major work are the author's insightful commentaries on Japanese and American culture. (Murakami has lived in the United States since 1986.)
