Haruki Murakami’s Men Without Women is a collection of seven short stories translated from Japanese into English. In the collection, Murakami examines the lives of many different men, exploring the various incarnations of isolation that afflict the human condition. From a widower who is trying to figure out why his wife had affairs during their marriage to a poet whose first love has just killed herself, all of the stories in this collection examine what it means to be a man left alone in the world. The narrative also explores themes such as deception, transformation, and forgiveness.
