Dance Dance Dance

by Haruki Murakami
Release date: 1994
Original title: Dansu dansu dansu
Type: other fiction
Genres: magical realism
Tags: translation

The original novel was published in 1988.

Note! Dance Dance Dance is a sequel to A Wild Sheep Chase, but it isn't always considered to be a part of the Trilogy of the Rat sequence.

In this propulsive novel by the author of Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and The Elephant Vanishes, one of the most idiosyncratically brilliant writers at work in any language fuses science fiction, the hard-boiled thriller, and white-hot satire into a new element of the literary periodic table.

As he searches for a mysteriously vanished girlfriend, Haruki Murakami's protagonist plunges into a wind tunnel of sexual violence and metaphysical dread in which he collides with call girls; plays chaperone to a lovely teenaged psychic; and receives cryptic instructions from a shabby but oracular Sheep Man. Dance Dance Dance is a tense, poignant, and often hilarious ride through the cultural Cuisinart that is contemporary Japan, a place where everything that is not up for sale is up for grabs.
