South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami

South of the Border, West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami is innocent as much as poetic. It’s about falling for and rescuing yourself from what can feel, in many ways, quiet and lonely; like the death of a beautiful star, and in its place, the birth of thousands and thousands of colors. And the cycle repeats. Birth after death. We must keep saving ourselves to drown in it completely.

What the book is about is accepting the void that’s so often left behind by others. In friendship, in love, and in passion. And feeling all of it, even when your love will never share a page. But there is power in being a part of the same book.
