Waterstones Says

A dream-like tale of doubt, loss and unrequited passion, Murakami's stunning novel follows the Narrator K as he battles with his unspoken love for his best friend Surami who, whilst travelling in Europe, mysteriously disappears on a Greek island.

A mystery story about love, the cosmos and other fictional universes.

Sumire is in love with a woman seventeen years her senior. Miu is glamorous and successful. Sumire is an aspiring writer who dresses in an oversized second-hand coat and heavy boots like a character in a Kerouac novel.

Sumire spends hours on the phone talking to her best friend K about the big questions in life: what is sexual desire, and should she ever tell Miu how she feels for her? Meanwhile K wonders whether he should confess his own unrequited love for Sumire.

Then, a desperate Miu calls from a small Greek island: Sumire has mysteriously vanished...

'How does Murakami manage to make poetry while writing of contemporary life and emotions? I am weak-kneed with admiration' - Independent on Sunday

'A beautiful novel, as light as a feather, and yet enduringly sad... a captivating book from one of the world's most interesting authors' - Sunday Herald

'Murakami has been compared to everyone from Raymond Carver to Raymond Chandler - which should tell you only one thing: he's unique' - Independent

'Confirms Murakami as a master of his craft... Out of this world' - Time Out
