Haruki Murakami Norwegian Wood Haruki Murakami Norwegian Wood I was 37 then, strapped in my seat as the huge 747 plunged through dense cloud cover on approach to Hamburg airport. Cold November rains drenched the earth, lending everything the gloomy air of a Flemish landscape: the ground crew in waterproofs, a flag atop a squat airport building, a BMW billboard. So - Germany again. Once the plane was on the ground, soft music began to flow from the ceiling speakers: a sweet orchestral cover ...

And then I have my wild card, the one I tend to show last and with most pleasure, because it feels like revealing ...

THE INTRUSION OF JIMMY BY P.G. WODEHOUSE CHAPTER I JIMMY MAKES A BET The main smoking-room of the Strollers Club had been filling for the last half-hour, and was now nearly full. In many ways, the Strollers, though not the most magnificent, is the pleasantest club in New York. Its ideals are comfort without pomp and it is given over after eleven oclock at night mainly to the Stage. Everybody is young, clean-shaven, and full of conversation: and the conversation strikes a purely professional ...
