Murakami Through Lacan

This just in from Sally Suzuki, Beholdmyswarthyface Media Director:

I thought our readers might be interested in this illuminating essay by Jonathan Dil, titled "Woman as Symptom and the Void at the Heart of Subjectivity: A Lacanian Reading of Murakami Haruki's 'The Wind-up Bird Chronicle.'" They also might want to check out Professor Dil's recent doctoral dissertation, available here in full. That is all for today. -Sally Suzuki

I'm not familiar with "The Wind-up Bird Bhronicle." Is it some kind of clever satire on Bhutan? Or maybe a misspelling of "Bra Nickel?"

Vladimir Kutznutzov,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
