After Dark, by Haruki Murakami

The newest novel from one of my top 5 favorites, Haruki Murakami, After Dark is sort of an Eyes Wide Shut, Tokyo-style. It chronicles the goings on of one evening in Tokyo — brothels & diners & random meetings. It’s got the dreamlike style that Murakami is known for, and is a quick read, but I didn’t find it as fun or compelling as most of his books. It does make me want to go back & read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, though.
