DescriptionA narrative particle-accelerator that zooms between Wild Turkey Whiskey and Bob Dylan, unicorn skulls and voracious librarians, John Coltrane and Lord Jim. Science fiction, detective story and post-modern manifesto all rolled into one rip-roaring novel, Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is the tour de force that expanded Haruki Murakami's international following. Tracking one man's descent into the Kafkaesque underworld of contemporary Tokyo, Murakami unites East and West, tragedy and farce, compassion and detachment, slang and philosophy. The result is a wildly inventive fantasy and a meditation on the many uses of the mind.

Reviews for Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
Two stories book
This book as others of Murakami, has this sequence of 2 stories interspersed, one of that is about a guy who is a Calcutec, and start a work with a "Professor" and the other one is a guy who go to a fortified city and has to resign to his shadow... it's very creative and with many symbolism. by Angela Cortes
