Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World
A Novel

In a virtuoso performance, Murakami negotiates parallel narratives: one about a split-brain data processor, or Calcutec, who's caught in the middle of an information war and must avoid both Semiotecs and subterranean monsters; and the other about a dream reader of skulls who is trying to reunite with his shadow. These seemingly disparate elements add up to an ingenious and compelling story.
--Recommended by Andy, City Lights Books

Japan's most widely-read and controversial writer, author of A Wild Sheep Chase, hurtles into the consciousness of the West with this narrative about a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters--not to mention Bob Dylan and Lauren Bacall.
