Publisher Comments:

New edition.

Synopsis:

Combining an offbeat cast of characters with Murakami's idiosyncratic prose, this novel is an assault on all the senses, a murder mystery that is also philosophical speculation, and a dark fable of advanced capitalism.

With a new memoir out, now's a good time to catch up on Murakami's fiction. This early novel has some of his trademark surreal incidents (a disappearing hotel, a Sheep man), but the oddness is held in check by a strong, nuanced emotional dimension and well-drawn characters. The somewhat hapless protagonist (divorced, adrift) meets hookers, hotel clerks, movie stars, famous photographers, surly teens, tough cops, and one-armed men as he tries to navigate through a series of confusing events (disappearances, murders, dreams). It's all done with great skill, restraint, and sympathy, making for a novel that is both moving and imaginative. Makes a good double feature with "A Wild Sheep Chase."
