About This Book
This is the latest novel, published 2 years after "Kafka on the Shore," by Haruki, the Japanese writer with an immense popularity all over the world and to be celebrating the 25th year as a novelist. In this story about what the two sisters go through between 12AM and 7AM of a day, you will witness some significant difference in style and subject from his past works.
Mari, 19 years old, spends her time in a late night restaurant reading because she does not want to go home. She happens to meet Takahashi, a former schoolmate of her older sister Eri, who gets her a job at "Alphaville." Working at this "love hotel," Mari meets a lot of different, bizarre kind of people such as a Chinese prostitute who got beaten up by her client, a former wrestler, Chinese mafia and so on.
Meanwhile, Eri has been asleep for two months after she and Mari became somewhat estranged. In her sleep, Eri comes and goes between this world and the other world, and desperately waits for a rescue with no answer.
