Description
With the same deadpan mania and genius for dislocation that he brought to his internationally acclaimed novels "A Wild Sheep Chase" and "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World," Haruki Murakami makes this collection of stories a determined assault on the normal. A man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard.
By turns haunting and hilarious, "The Elephant Vanishes" is further proof of Murakami's ability to cross the border between separate realities -- and to come back bearing treasure.
