The Elephant Vanishes

Haruki Murakami

i’ve definitely fallen into Murakami’s style now, the very fantastic, science fiction twinged fables. After the Quake, as a collection, was far more striking. but a few of these stories stand out with an obvious sense of humor or enjoyable haunting mysteriousness — “The Dancing Dwarf” and “TV People” respectively. now i am curious to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle after the short story that appears to have been worked into a novel.
