DescriptionToru Okada's cat has disappeared and this has unsettled his wife, who is herself growing more distant every day. Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has started 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.

Reviews for The Wind-up Bird Chronicle
Wind-up Bird Chronicle
Ha ruki finds the unreal in the real, and the real in the unreal. One of the rare books that live up to the rave reviews on the back page and, as printed on the front cover ~ mesmerising, surreal.
A joy to read. by Barry Kevin Newtonunder review
