Murakami Covers

Each story in the series written by Murakami is rooted in everyday experiences. As each of the protagonists lives their mundane lives, they search to break out of their routines and social molds through unsettling ways. A newlywed couple robs a “bakery” in the middle of the night, a romantic tutor pursues one of his married students, and a businessman burns barns in mornings before he goes to work. Each story’s climax is tied to a time of the day, and the colors on the covers represent this.
