Dance, dance, dance by Haruki Murakami( file )
7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
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 facade. Dance, dance, dance is a supernatural thriller, a detective novel and a love story, as unique as its extraordinary characters

Living in her own house in a small, posh Irish town, 35-year-old Elizabeth Egan is an uptight interior designer and adoptive mother to her six-year-old nephew, Luke, whose mother, Elizabeth's 23-year-old sister, Saoirse, prefers boozing to parenting. Saoirse's behavior reminds Elizabeth of a painful past, the alcoholic mother who abandoned the family, leaving Elizabeth to care for her baby sister and forgo her own childhood, and the emotionally distant, controlling father still waiting for his wife's return. Unlike the other women in her family, Elizabeth adheres to a fastidiously well-ordered existence, no mess, no complications, no love. But all that changes with the arrival of Ivan, a goofy and spontaneous man intent on infusing much-needed fun and tenderness into Elizabeth's frigid persona

A wild sheep chase by Haruki Murakami( Sound Recording )

A wild sheep chase is one of Murakami's most fantastical novels. An advertising executive, infatuated with a girl who possesses the most perfect ears (an erotic charge for him) uses a picture of a sheep with a star on its back. This catapults him into a weird adventure to find the mythical sheep up in the wilds of Hokkaido, Japan's northern island. There are strange encounters, a hotel with an extra disappearing floor, and other oddities. A wild sheep chase is an early Murakami work, but its remarkable and individual voice makes it one of the most thrilling of his books
