Blind Willow Sleeping Woman (Audio) - Haruki Murakami

The other day, my son asked me, "What is your least favorite letter of the alphabet?" (He's nine, by the way.) I replied that I like all of the letters because they allow me to make all the sounds I need to make. I also said that I would be afraid to insult any of the letters by identifying a least favorite, because that letter might get offended and take away my ability to pronounce it. I realized while I was saying all this that my having thought this way was a direct result of listening to the final story in the collection. I explained that to my son, but I won't spoil your fun by explaining it to you. You'll have to see for yourself.
