Traditional Chinese paperback edition of 1Q84, by Haruki Murakami, is a near-past story inspired by Orwells futuristic 1984. It is told through the bizarre experiences of two protagonists searching for each other: a woman who descends into an alternate universe in 1984 and goes on to commit murders, and a passive college entrance exam prep instructor with a fetish, who is also an unfulfilled and never published novelist. Both exhibit deeply rooted alienation reminiscent of protagonists in Murakamis works. Book 3 of 4 In Chinese. Distributed by Tsai Fong Books, Inc.
