Popular Hits of the Showa Era - Ryū Murakami, Ralph McCarthy This book is awesome!

I picked it up expecting a daft switch-off read, and that's exactly what I was provided with, and a whole lot more :-)

Best way to describe it:
Best way to define this book.

The only other Ryū Murakami book I read was Piercing, which is more of an intimate psychological study, whereas this book is clearly overblown fun and contrasting the two books really shows his versatility as an author.

Funny, crazy, and better yet, probably some parable for modern Japanese society that I don't really care to investigate!

Comes highly recommended by me, whoever I am :D
