''Norwegian Wood'' (Japanese: ノルウェイの森, ''Noruwei no Mori'') is a 1987 ComingOfAge novel by the Japanese author HarukiMurakami. The publication of this book led Murakami to unwanted superstardom in Japan; so much so that he eventually left for the United States and Germany. Fans of his works often note that ''Norwegian Wood'' as a novel is far removed from his ordinary works. It is a fairly straightforward tale of adolescent romance and the protagonist, Toru Watanabe, is very much an {{Everyman}} as opposed to other protagonists in works such as ''Literature/KafkaOnTheShore'' or ''Literature/AfterDark''.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Sadly, Naoko and Hatsumi. Also Kizuki, whose death provides the catalyst for events in the novel. The reader never gets an inkling towards what caused his suicide, though. There's also Naoko's older sister whose suicide is also left unexplained. The novel seems to run on this trope.]]
