A mesmerising, surreal novel - Murakami's most celebrated and influential masterpiece

Toru Okada's cat has disappeared.

His wife is growing more distant every day.

Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has recently been receiving.

As this compelling story unfolds, the tidy suburban realities of Okada's vague and blameless life, spent cooking, reading, listening to jazz and opera and drinking beer at the kitchen table, are turned inside out, and he embarks on a bizarre journey, guided (however obscurely) by a succession of characters, each with a tale to tell.

Industry Reviews
'Visionary...a bold and generous book' - New York Times 'Murakami weaves textured layers of reality into a shot-silk garment of deceptive beauty' - Independent on Sunday 'Deeply philosophical and teasingly perplexing, it is impossible to put down' - Daily Telegraph 'Mesmerising, surreal, this really is the work of a true original' - The Times "It's a bizarre trip and I like it for the exact opposite reason that I like Belsky's book. That book is entirely practical in terms of life work strategies and this book is like a David Lynch film in a book." - Pam Fujimoto * Drum

" The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami is a breath of originality. Murakami is known for his unusual blend of the mundane and the fantastical, and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle epitomises this style. This book is my favourite because it really resonated with me, the way it links together seemingly unrelated ideas into a meaningful story is incredibly unique." - Senan Tuohy-Hamill University Observer
