Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami


Links for the East Side Readers' discussion.

Here is the Reading Group Guide, some biographical information on Murakami and his official website (which is quite beautiful). Oh: and the words --
Norwegian Wood

I once had a girl, or should I say, she once had me.
She showed me her room, isn't it good, Norwegian wood?
She asked me to stay and she told me to sit anywhere,
So I looked around and I noticed there wasn't a chair.
I sat on a rug, biding my time, drinking her wine.
We talked until two and then she said, "It's time for bed."
She told me she worked in the morning and started to laugh.
I told her I didn't and crawled off to sleep in the bath.
And when I awoke I was alone, this bird had flown.
So I lit a fire, isn't it good, Norwegian wood.

Thanks for a great conversation about Murakami's Norwegian Wood. Once again, we learned there was more there than meets the eye... and I continue to be amazed how an already enjoyable reading experience can be enhanced by talking about it afterwards. Way better than just reading book reviews!
