Description

Coming this October: Killing Commendatore, the much-anticipated new novel from Haruki Murakami   Kafka on the Shore displays one of the world's great storytellers at the peak of his powers.   Here we meet a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who is on the run, and Nakata, an aging simpleton who is drawn to Kafka for reasons that he cannot fathom. As their paths converge, acclaimed author Haruki Murakami enfolds readers in a world where cats talk, fish fall from the sky, and spirits slip out of their bodies to make love or commit murder, in what is a truly remarkable journey.
