Their relationship is told through the eyes of Sumire's close male friend. The aging Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside down. A lonely boy, a mysterious girl, and a tormented sheep man plot their escape from the nightmarish library of internationally acclaimed, best-selling Haruki Murakami's wild imagination.

In attempt to discover why, Haruki Murakmi talks to the people who lived through the catastrophe, and in so doing lays bare the Japanese psyche.

The time between dusk and dawn is explored as a metaphor on many levels, in several ways. This would have to be one of Murakami's more accessible novels, and one that leaves a somewhat pleasantly disturbing after glow.

I hope that those testing this style will enjoy it.
