Description

A marvelous hybrid of mythology and mystery, A Wild Sheep Chase is the extraordinary literary thriller that launched Haruki Murakami’s international reputation.

It begins simply enough: A twenty-something advertising executive receives a postcard from a friend, and casually appropriates the image for an insurance company’s advertisement. What he doesn’t realize is that included in the pastoral scene is a mutant sheep with a star on its back, and in using this photo he has unwittingly captured the attention of a man in black who offers a menacing ultimatum: find the sheep or face dire consequences. Thus begins a surreal and elaborate quest that takes our hero from the urban haunts of Tokyo to the remote and snowy mountains of northern Japan, where he confronts not only the mythological sheep, but the confines of tradition and the demons deep within himself. Quirky and utterly captivating, A Wild Sheep Chase is Murakami at his astounding best.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 31, 1990 – A Japanese yuppie plunges into chaos after he discovers a snapshot depicting a unique crossbreed of sheep. In ``a comic combination of disparate styles: a mock-hardboiled mystery, a metaphysical speculation and an ironic first-person account of an impossible quest . . . Murakami emerges as a wholly original talent,'' PW wrote.

Customer Reviews

A Wild Sheep Chase

I'm a huge fan of Murakami's and have read many of his novels and short stories in no particular order. It was just by chance that I chose this one. Lots of fun. One of his best. After reading it, my daughter told me to read "Dance, Dance,Dance" which is the companion "sequel".
What a great pair of books.
