1Q84 by Haruki Murakami. From eurya

One review described 1Q84 as a "complex and surreal narrative" which "shifts back and forth between tales of two characters, a man and a woman, who are searching for each other." It tackles themes of murder, history, cult religion, violence, family ties and love.
The title is a play on the Japanese pronunciation of the year 1984. The letter Q and the Japanese number 9 are homophones, which are often used in Japanese wordplay.

Old Ladies. From Liiolii

Inge Löök talks for emancipation and says that it’s now time for older women to let go and to make things which brings them to laugh. She says also that men always have done it. Women should show that it’s the small things which make the life worth to live. Women shouldn’t always serve and satisfy everyone. In stead should older women take the chance to be lazy, they should laugh more and enjoy the life. Inge Löök fan club Facebook
