I've only started reading him this year (and am only like 10% through his bibliography) but my love of Murakami has degenerated into this freakish parasocial farce where I have managed to delude myself we are besties and I am the only person in the world who has ever heard of his books, which I of course understand deeper and more intellectually than everyone else etc etc. As a wearer of novelty T-shirts and lifelong collector of stuff, I’ve amassed quite a lot of tees over the years. The short essays first appeared in the Japanese men's fashion magazine Popeye not too long ago, and this book also features a couple of interviews Murakami did for the same magazine around the time that the photos and essays were published, just to pad things out a little bit.

A little self-deprecatory humor going on here, but you can’t help feeling the American spirit in it, the optimistic, cheerful lack of introspection that says, “Who cares about being sophisticated! I’m not particularly interested in collecting things, but there is a kind of running motif in my life: despite my basic indifference, objects seem to collect around me. It's a very small book of around 100 pages or so, of some of the most interesting t-shirts which murakami himself have hoarded.

Well, more power to him, but you, the reader, may want to consider the difference between beguiling your time and wasting it.Photograph of one of Murakami’s favourite T-shirts, which became the source inspiration for his “Tony Takitani” short story. This one is a collector's item exclusively for the die-hard Murakami fan who wants to emulate and imitate his every move. It’s a quirky idea for a book that’s also very Murakami-esque, but Murakami T is definitely only something fans will bother with - though even to those I would say not to expect anything amazing from this short book.
