Message 168: Radiohead and Murakami

Samuel J.P. Shaw has written an essay entitled “Where Murakami Ends and Radiohead Begins: A Comparative Study” available online at exorcising ghosts, a site of Haruki Murakami resources in English (the essay is also available as a Word file). The essay finds compelling correspondences betweem Murakami’s novels and Radiohead’s music. Murakami has been interviewed by, and Thom Yorke has mentioned reading his novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, as Shaw notes in his essay.
