Norwegian Wood

A trailer for the new film adaption of Murakami's Norwegian Wood can be seen here.

Until Wind-up Bird Chronicle, Norwegian Wood was Murakami's most acclaimed novel back in his native Japan. For a long time I thought it was one of his lesser works, but I'm coming to change my opinions on Murakami, and I think this might be the one that lasts. Murakami does melancholy better than almost anyone else.
