Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this reissue of his American debut novel, Japan's bestselling author Haruki Murakami makes us forget everything we know about the Land of the Rising Sun. Through his bold, edgy voice, we enter a postmodern world described by a narrator who could be Philip Marlowe's younger, cooler brother — or at least his Japanese cousin.

The twenty-something protagonist of this hip, romantic thriller, who has more than his share of troubles with women and a fetish for the feminine ear, finds himself drawn into an elaborate quest for a mysterious sheep with a cream-colored star on its back. From the urban haunts of Tokyo to the sprawling suburban estate of a high-powered right-wing politico, to the chilly desolation of the remote island of Hokkaido, Murakami weaves an unforgettable story of enchantment, suspense, and human mystery.

"Murakami is a mythmaker for the millennium, a wiseacre wiseman". — The New York Times Book Review

"Immensely readable...in a staccato, hard-boiled American style, Murakami tattoos out short, snappy sentences of world-weary deadpan". — The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Marvelously engaging...like spending a splendidly foul weekend with the Four Raymonds — Chandler, Carver, Massey, and Queneau". — Frederick Barthelme
-- Murakami's highly awaited novel, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, will be published by Knopf in the summer of 1997.
