From the fatherland, with love by Ryū Murakami( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
From the Fatherland, with Love is set in an alternative, dystopian present in which the dollar has collapsed and Japan's economy has fallen along with it. The North Korean government, sensing an opportunity, sends a fleet of rebels in the first land invasion that Japan has ever faced. Japan can't cope with the surprise onslaught of Operation From the Fatherland, with Love. But the terrorist Ishihara and his band of renegade youths--once dedicated to upsetting the Japanese government--turn their deadly attention to the North Korean threat. They will not allow Fukuoka to fall without a fight. Epic in scale, From the Fatherland, with Love is laced throughout with Murakami's characteristically savage violence. It's both a satisfying thriller and a completely mad, over-the-top novel like few others

Bleu presque transparent : roman by Ryū Murakami( Book )
6 editions published between 1978 and 1997 in French and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Sexe et drogue au pays du Soleil levant. Un roman très dur, cruel, sans doute en grande partie autobiographique, écrit par un romancier japonais dans la vingtaine. On peut penser, avec André Major, que cette oeuvre forte mais sans humour ni profondeur, ne mérite qu'en partie son grand succès. A moins d'y voir, comme François Rivière, la description de "la condition d'une jeunesse qui se languit devant l'inanité du paysage social."
