Words of a Bibliophile

"It's only words, and words are all I have, to take your heart away." —Bee Gees

The Elephant Vanishes - Haruki Murakami, Alfred Birnbaum, Jay Rubin Haven't finished with this book (I only made it so far as the tenth story, "Family Affair") but am abandoning it for the moment in favor of other, more interesting books and because quite frankly, I failed to understand the point of most of the stories, which often left me going "And what was that all about, really?" (this most notably happened with "Barn Burning" and "The Little Green Monster"). I don't know if it's my problem with surrealism in general or just with Murakami. Anyhow, maybe someday I'll pick it up again...
