Beschreibung

When a man's favourite elephant vanishes, the balance of his whole life is subtly upset. A couple's midnight hunger pangs drive them to hold up a McDonald's. A woman finds she is irresistible to a small green monster that burrows through her front garden. An insomniac wife wakes up in a twilight world of semi-consciousness in which anything seems possible - even death. In every one of these stories Murakami makes a determined assault on the normal.

** Murakami¿s new novel is coming **

COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE

'The reason why death had such a hold on Tsukuru Tazaki was clear. One day his four closest friends, the friends he¿d known for a long time, announced that they did not want to see him, or talk with him, ever again'

Pressestimmen

How does Murakami manage to make poetry while writing of contemporary life and emotions? I am weak-kneed with admiration Independent on Sunday Enchanting...intriguing... All of these tales have a wonderfully surreal quality and a hip, witty tone Wall Street Journal All the stories take place in parallel worlds not so much remote from ordinary life as hidden within its surfaces: secret alleys that afford unexpected - and unsettling - views New York Times Like the best thriller fiction, it nags you with the sensation that Something Nasty is about to happen Sunday Times Most collections of short stories work by the interplay of different voices. This one offers the more satisfying rewards of a novel: unity of tone and a richness of recurring detail that creates its own texture: spaghetti, lawns, hamburgers, beer-drinking, kid sisters, Sunday afternoons, a man's name Independent
