Ferrante and McKillip are awesome, but I haven't read either of these books. Only one here I have read is Kafka On The Shore: also the title of a song that became legendary, the sole single (backed w instrumental version) of a girl who then disappeared. Fun w the 00s Uncut/Mojo-type idolatry, then a 15-year-old boy flees something with a Dad-line penumbra, deep into the boondocks, finds a big sister figure, whom he fucks in a moonlight flight, not settling for her handjobs, finds the Kafka chick, who turns out to be his mom, so he fucks her too. By this point, I'm rooting for the Dad-like penumbra to squash him. I won't spoil the ending though. Is Murukami always like this?
