Hear the Wind Sing

Tokyo: Kodansha International (1987), 1987. First English language edition. Softcover. 12mo. [4], 5-165, [1], [10] (pages of publisher's advertisements in Japanese). Paper pictorial jacket over softcover grey wraps. Includes a bookmark for Kodansha English library. Translated by Alfred Birnbaum. Lacks the "obi" band. Wikipedia, "Hear the Wind Sing". The first novel in Murakami's Trilogy of the Rat, made available in English only by Kodansha International Publishing (until 2015 when the story was published in an omnibus English edition of Murakami's works). Murakami preferred this, as he considered it to be a work from his "immature" period. The novel is concerned with the Japanese student movement, writing as a process, and the ways in which Japanese and Western culture interacted in the latter half of the 20th century.
