Other works - Wind up everyone would have read - Norwegian Wood very likely - if not - I'd suggest that prior to reading his latest - will assist your appreciation of H. love of music and its prominent place.
The Dark Volume by GW Dahlquist. The sequel to the Glass Books of the Dream Eaters. Not as thick a book as the previous one, but just as engaging. Really want to read a third and find out what happens to Miss Temple.
