The Ultimate Haruki Murakami Quiz


A literary legend adored everywhere from Kyoto to Kidderminster, how much do you really know of the Japanese writer's work?

Though littered with awards and crowned as "among the world's greatest living novelists" by The Guardian, 64-year-old Murakami is actually something of a renegade in his native Japan. His anti-establishment themes have included everything from homosexuality to suicide, and as such have had a habit of upsetting the apple cart somehwat. But, if anything, his devil may care attitude to what's deemed 'acceptable' has only strengthened his loyal fanbase, with his latest novel - Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage - shifting over a million units in the first week alone.

Question is, how much do you (yes, you - hello!) know of Murakami's masterpieces? Earn your chops of Haruki fandom by tackling the below quiz, and find out.
