After the Quake
After the Quake Stories By Murakami, Haruki, 1949- Book - 2002 | 1st American ed.

Mostly the stories are related tangentially to the quake/aftermath of the quake (Kobe, 1995). I think Murakami very much captures the sort of surrealness that people's lives take after a big disaster -- the unease, the disruption to regular daily life even if not directly affected, the strangeness -- a hiccup in the "normal" world. Murakami is well-suited to capture these types of feelings in his stories. Recommended.
