Book Description

London: Hamish Hamilton. 1991. First British edition. One of Murakami’s best works, a metaphysical sci-fi detective story involving human data processing, unicorns, and—you guessed it—the end of the world. Perhaps one of Murakami’s more outlandish novels, its influences (Raymond Chandler, PKD) seem clear.
Dealer Notes
8vo. First British edition. Pale maroon cloth with yellow design to the spine, in the William Belcher dust jacket. The cloth clean and bright, the binding tight and square. Some offsetting to endpapers with some very mild scattered foxing to textblock edges and prelims, else clean. The dust jacket by William Belcher unclipped (15s net) and complete, flaps with scattered foxing, the rear panel and verso too, but otherwise bright without chips or tears. A very good or better copy.
