With the same deadpan mania and genius for dislocation that he brought to his internationally acclaimed novels **A Wild Sheep Chase** and **Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World**, Haruki Murakami makes this collection of stories a determined assault on the normal. A man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard.

By turns haunting and hilarious, **The Elephant Vanishes** is further proof of Murakami's ability to cross the border between separate realities — and to come back bearing treasure.

🔮Hidden Depths

Maybe you have your own particular favorite type of girl—one with slim ankles, say, or big eyes, or graceful fingers, or you’re drawn for no good reason to girls who take their time with every meal.
Strange as it may sound coming from my own mouth, I find I’m really very capable when it comes to carrying out immediate tasks around the office like that. I catch on quickly, operate methodically, think practically, don’t complain.
there’s a lot of barns in this world, and I’ve got this feeling that they’re all just waiting to be burned.
