Kafka on the Shore follows the fortunes of two remarkable characters. Kafka Tamura runs away from home at fifteen, under the shadow of his father's dark prophesy. The aging Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside down. Their parallel odysseys are enriched throughout by vivid accomplices and mesmerising dramas. Cats converse with people; fish tumble from the sky; a ghostlike pimp deploys a Hegel-spouting girl of the night; a forest harbours soldiers apparently un-aged since WWII. There is a savage killing, but the identity of both victim and killer is a riddle. Murakami's new novel is at once a classic tale of quest, but it is also a bold exploration of mythic and contemporary taboos, of patricide, of mother-love, of sister-love. Above all it is an entertainment of a very high order.

Book Description Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Dieses Buch ist der ungewöhnlichste Entwicklungs- und Liebesroman, den wir bisher von Japans Kultautor gelesen haben: zeitlos und ortlos, voller Märchen und Mythen, zwischen Traum und Wirklichkeit - und dabei voller Weisheit.'Als mein fünfzehnter Geburtstag gekommen war, ging ich von zu Hause fort, um in einer fernen, fremden Stadt in einem Winkel einer kleinen Bibliothek zu leben. Wenn ich alles der Reihe nach erzähle, brauche ich dafür wahrscheinlich eine Woche. Wenn ich stattdessen zunächst nur die wichtigen Punkte aufführe, dauert es ungefähr genauso lange. Das klingt vielleicht wie der Beginn eines Märchens. Aber es ist kein Märchen. In keinem Sinne.' Der Erzähler dieser Zeilen heißt Kafka Tamura und seine Reise führt in Wirklichkeit aus der realen Welt hinaus in sein eigenes Inneres, entlang an den Ufern des Bewusstseins. Eine schicksalhafte Prophezeiung, der Geschichte von Ödipus gleich, lenkt Kafkas labyrinthischen Weg. 'Kafka am Strand' heißt das Bild an der Wand von Saeki, der rätselhaften Leiterin jener kleinen Bibliothek. Und 'Kafka am Strand' heißt auch der Song aus der Zeit, als Saeki noch Pianistin war und einen jungen Mann leidenschaftlich liebte, sie waren ein Paar wie Romeo und Julia. Die Wege des Erzählers Kafka kreuzen sich auf geheimnisvolle Weise mit den ihren und denen eines alten Mannes, der die Sprache der Katzen versteht und Spuren folgt, die in eine andere Welt weisen. 615 pp. Englisch.
