@scottie If by “Murakami-esque” you mean the seemingly ordinary infused with the uncanny and a faintly vertiginous magic-realist kilter — then maybe Milkman by Anna Burns or several novels by Russell Hoban, such as The Medusa Frequency, Linger Awhile, or Amaryllis Night and Day. Because Murakami, like Hoban, sometimes prowls the borders of SFF, Ursula Le Guin might have the feel you’re looking for, especially The Telling or Four Ways to Forgiveness. Oh, and maybe Jo Walton’s Among Others.
