Abstract:

Eiji Miyake arrives in a sprawling Japanese metropolis to track down the father he has never met. But the city is a mapless place if you are 18, broke, and the only person you can trust is John Lennon. His 8-week hunt plunges into the hinterland between the city and the mind, where a Polish art movie is no less real than the coffee in front of him and letters from an Imperial Army soldier are signposts to next week, and where he crosses paths with numerologists, station masters, gateballers, hostesses, organ harvesters and insane chefs. Philosophical, colorful, sometimes violent, this is a dazzling novel about image, control and memory.
