Haruki Murakami: The Elephant Vanishes - Softcover


  • A dizzying short story collection that displays Murakami's genius for uncovering the surreal in the everyday, the extraordinary within the ordinary
  • *Featuring the story ‘Barn Burning’, the inspiration behind the Palme d’Or nominated film Burning*
  • When a man's favourite elephant vanishes, the balance of his whole life is subtly upset. A couple's midnight hunger pangs drive them to hold up a McDonald's. A woman finds she is irresistible to a small green monster that burrows through her front garden. An insomniac wife wakes up in a twilight world of semi-consciousness in which anything seems possible - even death.
  • In every one of these stories Murakami makes a determined assault on the normal.
