Elephant Vanishes, Murakami,  Haruki
Elephant Vanishes
Haruki Murakami

Paperback $19.99 - Random House UK
Fiction - Published: 1/Apr/2003 - ISBN: 9780099448754

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 to a twilight world of semi-consciousness in which anything seems possible - even death. In every one of the stories that make up The Elephant Vanishes, Murakami makes a determined assault on the normal. He has a deadpan genius for dislocating realities to uncover the surreal in the everyday, the extraordinary in the ordinary.
