Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
Although the subject matter is probably too adult for anything less than college level, Haruki Murakami’s 2005 novel Kafka on the Shore is the absolutely definitive modern surrealist novel, and happens to be a perfect example of what is wonderful about Japanese fiction. It is also one of most layered novels in recent memory, as it reveals more every time you read it. The nature of “reality” is called into question often and by the end of a second or third read, you might not actually care what is real or not anymore. There’s so much to discuss about Murakami’s work as a whole that a whole class could easily be dedicated to his work.
