    Forget everything you know about Japan and enter the postmodern world of Haruki Murakami's A Wild Sheep Chase, where people sweat about their careers, drink too much, and drift through broken marriages, all without a kimono in sight. The near-thirty-year-old protagonist of this funny, haunting tale could be Philip Marlowe's younger, cooler brother, or at least his Japanese cousin, who 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 northern island Hokkaido, Murakami weaves an unforgettable story of enchantment, suspense, and human mystery, in the dazzling Western debut of modern Japan's leading novelist.

You're trying to find the direction of the flow, struggling to hold on to the axis of time. But you can't locate the borderline separating dream and reality. Or even the boundary between what's real and what's possible. All you're sure of is that you're in a delicate position. Delicate - and dangerous. You're pulled along, a part of it, unable to pin down the principles of prophecy, or of logic.' One of the world's great storytellers at the peak of his powers! 467p.

    This Kafkaesque novel is many things: the story of a marriage that mysteriously collapses; a jeremiad against the superficiality of contemporary politics; an investigation of painfully suppressed memories of war; a bildungsroman about a compassionate young man's search for his own identity as well as that of his country. All of Murakami's storytelling genius - combining elements of detective fiction, deadpan humor, and metaphysical truth, and swiftly transforming commonplace realism into surreal revelation - is on full, seamless display: an alternately alienating and seductive, sublimely riveting read. 607p.
