Either one of the greatest living novelists or a populist noodler, depending on your viewpoint, Haruki Murikami is one of the best-selling writers in the world. Almost everyone will have a novel of his on a shelf somewhere at home.
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is one of his odder projects, a story of a man who loses both his wife and his cat (careless) and goes on a quest to find both. That quest turns ever weirder, with a spooky well making an appearance and interjections from war veterans who experienced terrible things in battle. But how well do you remember it? Take our Ultimate Wind-Up Bird Chronicle Quiz and find out. Have that, populism.
