Publisher Description

Quirky and utterly captivating, A Wild Sheep Chase is Murakami at his astounding best.

An advertising executive receives a postcard from a friend and casually appropriates the image for an advertisement. What he doesn’t realize is that included in the scene is a mutant sheep with a star on its back, and in using this photo he has unwittingly captured the attention of a man who offers a menacing ultimatum: find the sheep or face dire consequences. Thus begins a surreal and elaborate quest that takes readers from Tokyo to the remote mountains of northern Japan, where the unnamed protagonist has a surprising confrontation with his demons.

A Wild Sheep Chase

I'm a huge fan of Murakami's and have read many of his novels and short stories in no particular order. It was just by chance that I chose this one. Lots of fun. One of his best. After reading it, my daughter told me to read "Dance, Dance,Dance" which is the companion "sequel".
What a great pair of books.
