The Elephant Vanishes
Paperback - English

With the same deadpan mania and genius for dislocation that he brought to his internationally acclaimed novels "A Wild Sheep Chase" and "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World", Haruki Murakami makes this collection of stories a determined assault on the normal. ...In the tales that make up The Elephant Vanishes, the imaginative genius that has made Haruki Murakami an international superstar is on full display.

In these stories, a man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard. By turns haunting and hilarious, in The Elephant Vanishes Murakami crosses the border between separate realities--and comes back bearing remarkable treasures.

Includes the story Barn Burning, which is the basis for the major motion picture Burning.
