The Elephant Vanishes, Paperback / softback Book

The Elephant Vanishes Paperback / softback


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.
