Product details

Product description


"His fantasies, with their easy reference to western pulp fiction and music, retain a beauty of the mind" (Guardian)

"A remarkable writer...he captures the common ache of contemporary heart and head" (Jay McInerney)

"Combines a witty sci-fi pastiche and a dream-like Utopian fantasy in two separate narratives which alternate in an interweave of precognition and deja vu" (Richard Lloyd Parry Independent)

"Here is abundant imagination at play" (Sunday Times)

"Murakami's bold willingness to go straight-over-the-top has always been a signal indication of his genius...a powerful melange of disillusioned radicalism, keen intelligence, wicked sarcasm and a general allegiance to the surreal. If Murakami is the "voice of a generation," as he is often proclaimed in Japan, then it is the generation of Thomas Pynchon and Don De Lillo" (Washington Post)

Book Description

"A wildly inventive fantasy and a meditation on the many uses of the mind"
