کتاب مردان بدون زن

اثر هاروکی موراکامی از انتشارات مروارید - مترجم: نیلوفر شریفی-جدید ترین کتاب ها

موراکامی در جایی نقل می‌کند: «برای من نوشتن رمان یک چالش و نوشتن داستان کوتاه یک لذت است. اگر نوشتن رمان را به ساختن جنگل تشبیه کنیم، نوشتن داستان کوتاه به مثابه‌ی ساختن یک باغ است.» او در این کتاب که موضوع محوری‌اش «تنهایی»‌ست، از قدرتش برای مشاهده و به تصویر کشیدن زندگی مردانی بهره می‌برد که هر یک به نحوی خود را تنها می‌یابند و با شوخ‌طبعی غریب و خاص خود، مجموعه داستان «مردان بدون زنان» را به رشته‌ی تحریر درمی‌آورد، یک اثر کلاسیک درخشان و معاصر دیگر. قوه‌ی تخیل عمیق، مضامین ابهام‌آلود و تنوع در انتخاب موضوعاتش به موازات شباهت‌های جزئی اما تعیین‌کننده در خلق آثار منحصر به فرد از او یک چهره‌ی ادبی بین‌المللی و پرفروغ ساخته است... ؛

Ja prosto obožavam ovog čoveka!
Savršeno, na njegov svojstven način upakovano.
Svaku sam priču doživela kao jedan mali roman.

❤️ Imam osećaj da su njeno i moje srce nečim čvrsto povezani. Kad se njeno srce pomeri, ono sa sobom povuče i moje. Kao dva čamca vezano konopcem. Čak i da želim da presečem tu vezu, sečivo kojim bi se ona dala preseći nigde ne postoji. ❤️

@Thats what it is like to lose a woman. And at a certain time, losing one woman means losing all women. Thats how we become Men Without [email protected]
-- Haruki Murakami, Men Without Women

@description@

This is a soft Murakami. A lot of his novels are dreamlike, but this one seems more like an emotional smell than a memory. There just isnt a lot to grab onto. It reminded me of petting a sea anemone flower at a local aquarium. I knew I was doing it. I was even thrilled a bit as I was doing it. It just didnt register in the way I predicted.

Anyway, the book is a series of short stories, Ive included my ranking for each:
1. Drive My Car - ★★★★
2. Yesterday - ★★★
3. An Independent Organ - ★★
4. Scheherazade - ★★★★
5. Kino - ★★★★
6. Samsa in Love - ★★★
7. Men without Women - ★★★

Loved it! I always love Murakami, even his less than perfect works but this is an excellent addition to his oeuvre. I generally prefer his novels to his short fiction but these stories are wonderful.

The stories all center around the loneliness of the male protagonists. There are missed connections and losses and a general inability to connect or stay connected to anyone, especially women. But these men seem generally isolated and lonely. Even their male friendships tend to center around lost or unattainable women. The men particularly yearn for a woman to assuage their pain. Love-or the lack of it-is the empty center around which their lives revolve.

In the title story, the narrator learns that an old lover of his has killed herself. The writing in this story is the lyrical and moving as he contemplates their relationship and his loneliness (despite, apparently, his marriage!). I wanted to memorize long passages of this beautiful story (although I think the beauty of the writing was stronger than the story itself).

In @[email protected], a woman beguiles a homebound man (the reason for his being homebound is never explained, hes one of Murakamis men without the will to go into the world, in the most literal sense) with stories. In her tale of her adolescence, she talks of a boy she was obsessed with and where that obsession led her. Like the men, the women in these stories are also unable to form lasting connections with others.

@Samsa in [email protected] is the oddest, funniest, and yet also frightening/touching stories in the collection. In a riff off Kafka, a roach wakes up to find himself Gregor Samsa, a human. He has difficulty adjusting to his new body (as did Samsa) and vague memories of his perhaps once being a man named Samsa. He too is confined to his house where a hunchbacked woman comes to fix a lock. He is fascinated by her. But alongside this story of possible love is the presence of tanks in the city (the invasion of Prague by the Germans?) and the ominous absence of his family.

I had read the story @[email protected] before but was happy to reread it. It is reminiscent of Murakamis earlier work, complete with a jazz bar and mysterious strangers. I was filled with a longing to reread his early novels.

Murakami remains, for me, a master of literature. Always interesting, always filled with beautiful writing and interesting stories. There is none of his literal magical elements in these stories but there is the magic of the stories themselves.

This would be an easy beginning for readers new to Murakami but perhaps not the best. I would still recommend Kafka on the Shore, IQ84. Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World or A Wild Sheep Chase. And for short stories, I would recommend After Dark. But this would be almost as good a place to being: accessible, moving stories filled with Murakamis distinctive touches and themes. A new reader would certainly get a sense of Murakamis power as a writer. If he or she liked this book, theres a whole world of Murakami out there.

And, of course, for those of us already in love with Murakami, this is a must and rewarding read.

Dreams are the kind of things you can—when you need to—borrow and lend out.

You know how, for many people, reading books is like travelling without leaving the comfort of their living rooms? For me, reading Murakami is like returning home after a long and exhaustive trip. His prose, his style, all the little well known things that make up his stories, feel like a cozy, dim-lit room with dark corners and telephones that ring menacingly, like an unfortold dark turn of events, in the middle of the night. These beautiful antitheses is what I love about Murakami.

Men who are divorced, men who are married, lonely men, men in relationships, widowers, men who have undergone a sudden metamorphosis, all of them share a special world of their own. All of them have a missing jigsaw piece in the place of their hearts.

Its one of those collections that theres no need to rate the stories seperately. In fact, I think it would be a mistake to do so. In all seven of them, I experienced the same old feelings Haruki knows ridiculously well how to deliver. Favorite: Kino. Least favorite: An Independent Organ.
Suddenly one day you become Men Without Women. That day comes to you completely out of the blue, without the faintest of warnings or hints beforehand. No premonitions or foreboding, no knocks or clearing of throats. Turn a corner and you know you’re already there. But by then there’s no going back. Once you round that bend, that is the only world you can possibly inhabit. In that world you are called “Men Without Women.” Always a relentlessly frigid plural.

Ahh Murakami and his endless alienated, lonely male characters! Men Without Women is a collection of short stories by Haruki Murakami that came out in 2017 (not to be confused with Hemingways short-story collection of the same name). Here, we have seven stories with male characters, each with varying degrees of despair, dread or loneliness from the lack or loss of women. There are themes of grief, betrayal, masochism or just complete alienation in this book. Some of the stories are really well-done, I particularly enjoyed @Samsa in [email protected], which is a reworked version of Franz Kafkas The Metamorphosis, and @[email protected], which has some of the many usual Murakami elements I happen to love. Most of the stories are already available online on The New Yorker.
