Haruki Murakami Would Prefer You Didn't Read This

Known for books like Norwegian Wood, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and Kafka on the Shore, Haruki Murakami is probably the most widely-read Japanese writer in the world right now. His first book, Pinball, 1973, is out of print in English, however. You can have it here for free.

Murakami has dismissed the book as juvenalia, but that probably won't dissuade fans from reading it. He wrote it in 1980, and now copies are sold on Amazon for about $400. Click the link below to get the 79-page PDF. Thanks to The Millions for this one.
