In 1995, the Japanese city of Kobe suffered a massive earthquake. Nearly 6,000 people died. after the quake was the imaginative response from Japan’s leading novelist, Haruki Murakami: six stories, each dealing not directly with the catastrophe but the wider seismic effect it had on the emotional lives of people many miles away. It became a catalyst for individuals to reassess their lives with unexpected consequences for themselves and their families and friends around them. after the quake is Murakami’s most popular short story collection.

Haruki Murakami: After the Quake

UFO in Kushiro

Shortly after he had sent the papers back with his seal…

Two young women wearing overcoats of similar design…

Shimao drove a small four-wheel-drive Subaru.

The three of them left the noodle shop…

While she was bathing, Lomura watched a variety show…

Landscape with Flatiron

As usual, Junko thought about Jack London's 'To build a Fire'.

Junko came to this Ibaraki town in May…

Walking on the beach one evening a few days later…

The flames finally found their way to the biggest log…

The bonfire was nearing its end.

All God's Children Can Dance

Yoshiya's mother was 43, but she didn't look more than 35.

When Yoshiya turned 17, his mother revealed the secret…

The man boarded the Chiyoda Line train to Abiko.

The train was almost out of Tokyo and just a station or two…

Yoshiya felt a faint throbbing in his temples…

He trod the earth and whirled his arms…

Thailand

She stayed on alone at the hotel in Bangkok…

Nimit gave a little nod but said nothing.

The limousine reached its destination at three o'clock…

The pool that Nimit had found was half an hour's drive…

Where did you learn English?' Satsuki asked Nimit.

On her last day before leaving for Japan…

That night, lying in her broad, pristine bed, Satsuki wept.

Superfrog Saves Tokyo

Katatiri scanned the room for a hidden TV camera…

As a member of the Trust Bank Lending Division…

Frog looked straight into Katagiri's eyes and said…

The moment Katagiri arrived at work the next morning at nine…

Frog told Katagiri his plan.

When he woke up, he was in bed.

Frog came to his hospital room that night.

Frog lost his grasp on words…

Honey Pie 1

It was almost two a.m. by the time Sala went back to bed.

Taktsuki had Junpei with him when he adopted the same approach…

The fifth day after he stopped going to classes…

Junpei went to his classes the next day…

Takatsuki had landed the job he had always wanted…

Honey Pie 2: Junpei learned just before Sala's second birthday…

Two years went by.

Junpei was in Barcelona at the time…

The three of them had dinner together as usual…

Sala slept in Sayoko’s bed that night.
