Sara Dillon is running away from the life she’s known in Chicago being the arm candy of the local senator who was famous for being unfaithful. In New York, she’s hoping to break free from those chains by starting over and things seem to be going great.
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.
