The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle book cover

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

Haruki Murakami

Explore the depths of Tokyo's suburbs and uncover buried secrets of World War II alongside Toru Okada in this heroically imaginative novel. A detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and a gripping exploration of a netherworld hidden beneath the placid surface of Tokyo. Alongside a cast of bizarre allies and antagonists, including a psychic prostitute, a malevolent politician, and an aging war veteran, Okada's search for his wife and her missing cat takes him on a prophetic journey that combines comedy and menace. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force that rivals Mishima and Pynchon in scope.

If you have always wanted to read Haruki Murakami, I think this period of time is perfect for it. He could have conceived of this whole thing. Try Kafka On The Shore. Or Colorless Tsukuru. Or Wild Sheep Chase. Or Wind Up Bird Chronicle.      source
