Ryu Murakami, along with Haruki Murakami (no relation), is one of the best-selling writers in Japan and a major figure in contemporary popular culture. Since publishing his first work, Almost Transparent Blue, which won Japan's most coveted literary prize in 1976, Ryu has produced a steady stream of novels, stories, and essays that consistently astound and delight readers with their wild flights of imagination, irreverent humor, and brilliant, convincing portraits of some of the quirkiest characters in Japanese literature.

69 is a roman a clef about coming of age during a time that left its mark on baby boomers around the world--a time when we really believed we could change the world before it changed us. By turns hilarious, cynical, frivolous, and poignant, the book is infused from start to finish with Ryu's relentless energy and optimism; it simply refuses to get tedious, preachy, or "literary" for a single moment.

The book is composed of the following: "Arthur Rimbaud," "Iron Butterfly," "Lady Jane," "Daniel Cohn-Bendit," "Claudia Cardinale," "Power to the Imagination," "Just Like a Woman," "Alain Delon," "Lyndon Johnson," "Cheap Thrills," "Amore Romantico," "Wes Montgomery," "Led Zeppelin," "April Come She Will," "Velvet Underground," and "It's a Beautiful Day."

    阿達馬是忠實的。並非對我忠實。阿達馬相信。並不是相信我。阿達馬相信一九六零年代末充滿了某種東西。而且對那東西忠實。可是很難說明那是什麼。那種東西令我們自由。讓我們掙脫單一價值觀的束縛獲得自由。

    讀的過程都很歡樂,讀完後卻可惜了只到這裡;畢竟是過去1969年的故事。

    男生青春式的故事,有一點九把刀惡搞、欠揍、熱血、太過自信的fu(大笑)

    跟村上龍平時的作品很不一樣,這本可以輕鬆的看,不要想太多要啟發我們什麼的事!

    然後...我發現男生的青春脫離不了雞雞這東西 囧。
    做任何事的出發點都可以是雞雞,不管是拍電影、舉行派對、反抗學校...XDD
