    you could always try the other murakami (not sure which you're reading). Also, you should read Dune.

    Kafka on the shore is great. Also recommend Demien, or other Hesse if you haven't already.

    edit- yes, dune. also the ender books or dark tower series if you're into 'sci-fi'.

    I really like contemporary American realistic fiction. Philip Roth is my favorite but you might try Don Delillo, Saul Bellow, Raymond Carver and Jonathon Franzen.

    Is this Magician? If so, I haven't forgot about you, but nothing has worked out yet. Still asking around

    Never read Murakami, so I can't say if any of these are similar, but The Sot-Weed Factor by John Barth blew my mind not long ago. Incredibly well-written (and very, uhhh, let's just say dirty). That guy was a genius. I'm most of the way through A House For Mr. Biswas right now. That's also a really great book. Plot description doesn't sound like much, but the writing/characters are terrific. Gotta warn you though, it can be pretty depressing. Funny too, but definitely depressing.

    John Barth is still alive. Natan's recs are good.

    I feel like Paul Auster is a good fit for Murakami fans.

    Thanks a lot man, just keep me posted. I'm waiting on a few things myself.



    Thanks. For Murakami fans I almost think to recommend magical realism a la Borges.

    The nice thing about contemporary American fiction is you get something with some heft and literary merit but it's still very readable.

    The other things that jump to mind right now for Murakami fans would be Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Danielewski's House of Leaves.

    Heh. Ooops. Didn't mean to kill him off there. He's got to be seriously old, and I haven't heard a word about him in years. :embar:

    I want to buy some black side-zips with a bit of heel. Can't seem to find anything like that on B&S (my fucking 7.5 feet) but I'm willing to go retail. Want to spend under 400. Best ideas?

    ughhh that feeling of trusting an incompetent tailor with over $500 worth of clothes :fu:

    when i asked him to tailor a pair of dress pants to no-break, he looked up at me and said, "what does that mean?"

    edit: should probably mention that hes the only tailor close to me. i got a shirt back from him once and both the cuffs were sewed back on upside down. i brought it back and it took 5 minutes for me to explain that he fucked up and that it's nearly impossible to button cuffs when theyre upside down. he tried telling me that they were supposed to be like that. asians and their stubborn pride :(
