Beyond Murakami

Vibe by: 

Listen, Murakami is great at doing Murakami, sure. I know! I've read all his stuff! But, I'm here to tell you there's more to the world than pasta, vinyl jazz records, and talking cats--though we love all those things. Visit ghosts, creepy folks, and mysterious shorelines in these colorful worlds that will feel at times familiar yet pleasantly weird.

(Not only that, but some of these books even feature fully-realized female characters!)
