BookFilter: I think the book takes place on Earth, and I think the book was written recently. A disaster of sorts happens and the only area of survival is a narrow strip of land, perhaps wrapping around the world, and perhaps powered/maintained by pipes. If people venture away from this strip, their worst fears/nightmares materialize and attack. I came across it somewhere on MetaFilter. Thanks in advance!
I'm reading more poetry lately and am wondering what poets/poems have a similar vibe to Murakami. I love his vivid language and surreal spins on daily life. [more inside]
