In a Tokyo suburb, Toru Okada searches for his wife's lost cat. However, the hunt turns nightmarish as he begins searching for his wife in the underworld below the calm surface of Tokyo. Soon, both of his searches lead him towards unlikely allies: a psychic prostitute, an evil politician who is praised by the media, a sixteen year old girl who is oddly morbid yet cheerfully so and an old war veteran who is scarred by his experiences in the Manchuria campaign. This collection brings together: The Thieving Magpie, Bird as Prophet and The Birdcatcher. About Haruki Murakami Haruki Murakami is a Japanese novelist, best known for writing 1Q84, A Wild Sheep Chase, and Norwegian Wood.
