Hard-boild wonderland and the end of the world.

It's a novel I am reading lately, by Haruki Murakami.

In the book, there are unicorns.
and their skulls.
Murakami's wonderland is dark and sweet.
Just like luxury chocolates.

There is a line that I really liked.
It's something that a guy who is main character of the story say while he imagine himself drinking whisky on the rock and listenning to "Vendome" by MJQ...

"Whisky, you should look at it steadily at first.
And when you get tired of looking at it, you should taste it.
Just like you do to pretty girls."

(I am not sure how it translated in English version. I read it in Japanese. I hope my translation makes sense..)

I imagine, if I was a pretty girl
and if I was treated like whisky....
It would feel heavenly...fulfilled..maybe.
