Publisher Description

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force—and one of Haruki Murakami’s most acclaimed and beloved novels.

In a Tokyo suburb, a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife’s missing cat—and then for his wife as well—in a netherworld beneath the city’s placid surface. As these searches intersect, he encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists. Gripping, prophetic, and suffused with comedy and menace, this is an astonishingly imaginative detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets from Japan’s forgotten campaign in Manchuria during World War II.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

I felt like I inhabited this book, I was sad when it came to an end. It had so much texture, color and emotion. The characters are so well formed that I knew them as individuals with all their quirks and idiosyncrasies. It’s a book that transports you to another place and allows the reader an individual interpretation.
