After DarkPaperback - 2008 | 1st Vintage International ed.
In After Dark --a gripping novel of late night encounters--Murakami's trademark humor and psychological insight are distilled with an extraordinary, harmonious mastery.
Nineteen-year-old Mari is waiting out the night in an anonymous Denny's when she meets a young man who insists he knows her older sister, thus setting her on an odyssey through the sleeping city. In the space of a single night, the lives of a diverse cast of Tokyo residents--models, prostitutes, mobsters, and musicians--collide in a world suspended between fantasy and reality. Utterly enchanting and infused with surrealism, After Dark is a thrilling account of the magical hours separating midnight from dawn.

QuotesAdd a Quote
The new day is almost here, but the older one is still dragging its heavy skirts. Just as ocean water and river water struggle against each other at a river mouth, the old time and new time clash and blend. Takahashi is unable to tell for sure which side - which world - contains his centre of gravity.
