Dance, Dance, Dance by Haruki Murakami
Book DescriptionHigh-class call girls billed to Mastercard. A psychic 13-year-old dropout with a passion for Talking Heads. A hunky matinee idol doomed to play dentists and teachers. A one-armed beach-combing poet, an uptight hotel clerk and one very bemused narrator caught in the web of advanced capitalist mayhem. Combine this offbeat cast of characters with Murakami's idiosyncratic prose and out comes Dance Dance Dance. It is an assault on the sense, part murder mystery, part metaphysical speculation; a fable for our times as catchy as a rock song blasting from the window of a sports car.

Hear the Wind Sing, Paperback (May 2016)» View all books by Haruki Murakami
A title, in which the narrator is home from college on his summer break. He spends his time drinking beer and smoking in J's Bar with the Rat, listening to the radio, thinking about writing and the women he has slept with, and pursuing a relationship with a girl with nine fingers.
UK Kirkus Review » Sequel to A Wild Sheep Chase, picking up the nameless narrator four years after he lost the woman with the beautiful ears in Hokkaido. Now, in his dreams, she summons him back there. This time he becomes involved with a bespectacled receptionist, a 13-year-old girl, a one-armed poet, two hookers and a matinee idol, all linked by supernatural experiences and a murder mystery. Apart from the Hokkaido hotel, the locations are Tokyo (it helps to have a street map handy) and Hawaii. As always in Murakami's work, there is a lot of consumption, especially drinking; anomie, both acute and free-floating; and naff rock-band name checks. The story unfolds slowly and repetitively, the cuteness is sometimes forced, and the metaphysical message amounts to little more than the title injunction, but the author has a plangent charm all his own. Alas, the translator is Alfred Birnbaum again. First published in Japan 1988. (Kirkus UK)
