MURAKAMI, H.: Dance, Dance, Dance (Unabridged)

‘All things considered, I’m the most ordinary guy you could hope to find. So why do these weird things keep happening to me?’ Weird? Well, ghostly signs in the night, unexplained murders, a psychic teenager who can get vibes from cars, a one-armed, surfing Vietnam vet poet and a Sheep-Man, for example. All centred around the Dolphin Hotel, once a small, but profoundly idiosyncratic establishment, now transformed into a glistening symbol of economic success. But there’s a secret lurking behind its gleaming façade. Dance, Dance, Dance is a supernatural thriller, a detective novel and a love story, as unique as its extraordinary characters.
