The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

A Novel. Nominiert: IMPAC Dublin Literary Award 1999

Coming this October: Killing Commendatore, the much-anticipated new novel from Haruki Murakami

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.

"A significant advance in Murakami's art . . . a bold and generous book." -The New York Times Book Review

"A stunning work of art . . . that bears no comparisons." -New York Observer

"With The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, Murakami spreads his brilliant, fantastical wings and soars." -Philadelphia Inquirer

"An epic . . . as sculpted and implacable as a bird by Brancusi." -New York Magazine

"Mesmerizing, original . . . fascinating, daring, mysterious and profoundly rewarding." -Baltimore Sun
