You've just passed someone on the street who could be the love of your life, the person you're destined for - what do you do? In Murakami's world, you tell them a story.

Selected from Haruki's Murakami's short story collections: The Elephant Vanishes, Blind Willow Sleeping Woman, Men Without Women. VINTAGE MINIS: GREAT MINDS. BIG IDEAS. LITTLE BOOKS.
