Top Definition
Fine Japanese author of urban magic realism. Novels such as 'Dance, Dance, Dance' and 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' have made Murakami one of the most popular writers in his native country with young people. His story of young love in the 1960's 'Norwegian Wood' was a sensation when it was published in the 1980's.
