Japanese Literature  
I study Japanese at an intermediate level and in an effort to understand more kanji by doing more than just learning it, I'd quite like to get ahold of some modern Japanese literature (say authors like Haruki Murakami, Natsuo Kirino [this author in particular, but not her novels 'Grotesque' or 'Out'], Ryu Murakami, Banana Yoshimoto, Kazuo Ishiguro etc). Books don't have to be brand new, but obviously in a clean, readable condition. I would quite like to avoid authors who use a lot of obscure kanji in their writing, but I don't mind too much... Also note, I'm not looking for anything that has been translated into Japanese from the original in another language ^_^
So if anyone here has any Japanese modern novels they'd be willing to sell, please let me know  (^-^ )  Thank you.

while i have some of these novels, i can't really part with them, but because i understand your position, i'd be willing to photocopy pages for you and send them to you, if you pay the cost of shipping the pages to you.

the novels i currently have on my desk are

hebi ni piasu by kanehara hitomi
hagoromo by yoshimoto banana
almost transparent blue by murakami ryu

let me know if that would be of help, and if its not allowed, i apologize.
