    This a wonderful collection of short stories and the editor (Jay Rubin) did a good job of organizing the short stories into various categories. Murakami Haruki did a good job with his introduction (as well as his two short stories included). I read this on my I phone normally waiting while my wife shopped or I ha

    I’m not reviewing this for the content, but for the quality of the physical book overall. I bought it as a valentines gift and the quality was so bad I returned it as it would be embarrassing to send. The paper is really flimsy like the free books you used to get in the front of magazines. The print quality is bad too
