    Across seven tales, Haruki Murakami brings his powers of observation to bear on the lives of men who, in their own ways, find themselves alone. Here are vanishing cats and smoky bars, lonely hearts and mysterious women, baseball and the Beatles, woven together to tell stories that speak to us all. Marked by the same wry humor that has defined his entire body of work, in this collection Murakami has crafted another contemporary classic.

    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    Across two parallel narratives, Murakami draws listeners into a mind-bending universe in which Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters collide to dazzling effect. What emerges is a novel that is at once hilariously funny and a deeply serious meditation on the nature and uses of the mind.

    As he searches for a mysteriously vanished girlfriend, Haruki Murakami's protagonist plunges into a wind tunnel of sexual violence and metaphysical dread in which he collides with call girls, plays chaperone to a lovely teenaged psychic, and receives cryptic instructions from a shabby but oracular Sheep Man. Dance Dance Dance is a tense, poignant, and often hilarious ride through the cultural Cuisinart that is contemporary Japan, a place where everything that is not up for sale is up for grabs.

    With the same deadpan mania and genius for dislocation that he brought to his internationally acclaimed novels A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Haruki Murakami makes this collection of stories a determined assault on the normal. A man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard.

    Kafka Tamura, quinze ans, fuit sa maison de Tokyo pour échapper à la terrible prophétie que son père a prononcée contre lui. Comme l'Œdipe de Sophocle, il est voué à être parricide et incestueux. Nakata, vieil homme simple d'esprit, prend lui aussi la route, obéissant à un appel impérieux. Comme l'Idiot de Dostoievski, il est incompris des humains, mais converse avec les chats. Entre l'enfant perdu et le vieillard amnésique, des liens insoupçonnés se nouent peu à peu, dans les dédales d'une odyssée où l'effroi et la beauté se mêlent vertigineusement.

    Alors que jusque-là je marchais normalement sur ce que je pensais être mon propre chemin, voilà que soudain celui-ci a disparu sous mes pas, et c'est comme si j'avançais simplement dans un espace vide sans connaître de direction, sans plus aucune sensation. Une jeune fille a disparu. Une jeune fille dont le narrateur avait entrepris de faire le portrait. Une jeune fille aux yeux comme une flamme gelée. Une jeune fille qui l'intrigue et qui pourrait être liée à Menshiki. Il va rendre visite au vieux peintre Tomohiko Amada. Là, dans la chambre d'hôpital, apparaît le Commandeur. Le Commandeur est prêt à offrir sa vie pour que la jeune fille soit retrouvée.
