Toru is a quiet and preternaturally serious young college student in Tokyo and is completely devoted to Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman, but their mutual passion is marked by the tragic death of their best friend years before.
While Toru starts to adapt to campus life and the loneliness and isolation he faces there, Naoko finds the pressures and responsibilities of life unbearable.
Toru finds himself reaching out to others and drawn to a fiercely independent and sexually liberated young woman.
Norwegian Wood written by internationally acclaimed author Haruki Murakami takes us to that distant place of a young man’s first, hopeless, and heroic love.
The bestseller is translated to Malayalam by Geetanjali. DC Books published it under the same title.
