Description
Born in 1951 in an affluent Tokyo suburb, Hajime—"Beginning," in Japanese—has arrived at middle age wanting for almost nothing. The postwar years have brought him a fine marriage, two daughters, and an enviable career as the proprietor of two jazz clubs. Yet a nagging sense of inauthenticity about his success threatens Hajime's happiness, while a boyhood memory of a wise, lonely girl named Shimamoto continues to haunt his thoughts. When she shows up one rainy night, now a breathtaking beauty with a secret from which she is unable to escape, the fault lines of doubt in Hajime's quotidian existence begin to give way, in this 1992 novel from World Fantasy Award, Franz Kafka Prize, and Jerusalem Prize winner Haruki Murakami. Voice artist Eric Loren reads this unabridged audiobook.

"Casablanca remade Japanese style.... It is dream-like writing, laden with scenes which have the radiance of a poem."—Times (London)

"Murakami never fails to surprise, whether he's mixing genres and creating ambitious alternate worlds, as he did in the magisterial Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, or putting his own spin on a tale of obsessional love, as he does here.... In Murakami's world, secret selves and other realities are forever lurking beneath the shifting sands of the everyday."—Booklist

"This book aches.... An eloquent treatise on the vertiginous, irrational powers of love and desire."—Independent (London)
