Summary

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2001.

The second novel from the critically acclaimed author of Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas.

As Eiji Miyake's 20th birthday nears, he arrives in Tokyo with a mission - to locate the father he has never met. 

So begins a search that takes him into the seething city's underworld, its lost property offices and video arcades, and on a journey that zigzags from reality to the realm of dreams. But until Eiji has fallen in love and exorcised his childhood demons, the belonging he craves will remain, tantalizingly, just beyond his grasp.

An Adventure of Grand Proportions

After listening to this novel, my brain feels it has been used in a pinball game machine. More twists and turns than a bowl of spaghetti. Brilliant and highly entertaining.
