The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Vintage 21

By  Haruki Murakami

Mesmerising, surreal, this really is the work of a true original - The Times

Toru Okada's cat has disappeared and this has unsettled his wife, who is herself growing more distant every day. Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has started receiving. As this compelling story unfolds, the tidy suburban realities of Okada's vague and blameless life, spent cooking, reading, listening to jazz and opera and drinking beer at the kitchen table, are turned inside out, and he embarks on a bizarre journey, guided (however obscurely) by a succession of characters, each with a tale to tell.
