About this Recording

MURAKAMI, H.: After the Quake (Unabridged)

In 1995, the Japanese city of Kobe suffered a massive earthquake. Nearly 6,000 people died. After the quake was the imaginative response from Japan’s leading novelist, Haruki Murakami: six stories, each dealing not directly with the catastrophe but the wider seismic effect it had on the emotional lives of people many miles away. It became a catalyst for individuals to reassess their lives with unexpected consequences for themselves and their families and friends around them. After the quake is Murakami’s most popular short story collection.
