Excerpt from A SHINAGAWA MONKEY

The following is quoted from A SHINAGAWA MONKEY by HARUKI MURAKAMI. A fiction published by The New Yorker.

If her life were a movie, it would be one of those low-budget nature documentaries guaranteed to put you to sleep. Washed-out landscapes stretching endlessly to the horizon. No changes of scene, no closeups, nothing ominous, nothing suggestive.
