“A Stunning Work Of Art That Bears No Comparisons,” The New York Observer Wrote Of Haruki Murakami S Masterpiece, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. In Its Playful Stretching Of The Limits Of The Real World, His Magnificent New Novel, Kafka On The Shore Is Every Bit As Bewitching And Ambitious. The Narrative Follows The Fortunes Of Two Remarkable Characters. Kafka Tamura Runs Away From Home At Fifteen, Under The Shadow Of His Father S Dark Prophesy. The Aging Nakata, Tracker Of Lost Cats, Who Never Recovered From A Bizarre Childhood Affliction, Finds His Highly Simplified Life Suddenly Overturned. Their Parallel Odysseys – As Mysterious To Them As They Are To The Reader – Are Enriched Throughout By Vivid Accomplices And Mesmerising Dramas. There Is A Brutal Murder, But The Identity Of Both Victim And Killer Is A Riddle. Yet This, As All Else, Is Eventually Resolved, Even As The Entwined Destinies Of Kafka And Nakata Are Gradually Unravelled. Murakami S New Novel Is At Once A Classic Tale Of Quest, But It Is Also A Bold Exploration Of Mythic And Contemporary Taboos, Of Patricide, Of Mother-Love, Of Sister-Love. Above All It Is An Entertainment Of A Very High Order.
About the Author

Since childhood, Murakami has been heavily influenced by Western culture, particularly Western music and literature. He grew up reading a range of works by American writers, such as Kurt Vonnegut and Richard Brautigan, and he is often distinguished from other Japanese writers by his Western influences.
Murakami studied drama at Waseda University in Tokyo, where he met his wife, Yoko. His first job was at a record store, which is where one of his main characters, Toru Watanabe inrwegian Wood, works. Shortly before finishing his studies, Murakami opened the coffeehouse Peter Cat which was a jazz bar in the evening in Kokubunji, Tokyo with his wife.
Many of his novels have themes and titles that invoke classical music, such as the three books making up The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: The Thieving Magpie (after Rossinis opera), Bird as Prophet (after a piano piece by Robert Schumann usually known in English as The Prophet Bird), and The Bird-Catcher (a character in Mozarts opera The Magic Flute). Some of his novels take their titles from songs: Dance, Dance, Dance (after The Dells song, although it is widely thought it was titled after the Beach Boys tune), rwegian Wood (after The Beatles song) and South of the Border, West of the Sun(the first part being the title of a song by Nat King Cole).
