An unusual fairytale about a cannibalistic librarian by Haruki Murakami and artist Chip Kidd


1 Like

It’s long been known that Librarians and Cannibalism are synonymous.

Don’t even get me started on the Dewy Decimal System, it’ll get ugly.

It’s really quite awful writing. A dull story to boot. And very, very short for the price. The only thing that saves it is Chip Kidd’s design.

I’m the opposite: I didn’t mind the story but greatly disliked the design, which I felt actively hindered the process of reading.

I liked Murakami until 1Q84. Now I doubt my previous preference. Never found a reason to dislike Kidd, however.

“I know, and such small portions too!”
