Description
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force&;and one of Haruki Murakami&;s most acclaimed and beloved novels.In a Tokyo suburb, a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife&;s missing cat&;and then for his wife as well&;in a netherworld beneath the city&;s placid surface. As these searches intersect, he encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists. Gripping, prophetic, and suffused with comedy and menace, this is an astonishingly imaginative detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets from Japan&;s forgotten campaign in Manchuria during World War II.
