Murakami's newest work of fiction transports you to the night life of Tokyo. We meet a small, but wildly exotic cast of characters during a seven hour period of time. This sometimes eerie novel takes you from a roughed up prostitute, through the room of the MAN WITH NO FACE, and all the while telling you of two people attempting to reconnect. A great read for a new or old Murakami fan!

Published: Vertigo - October 28th, 2008

One of the most enjoyable graphic series I’ve read in a long time.  This conceptually awakening graphic novel is an amazing look into a future no one could see happening.  In an instant, everything on earth with a Y chromosome dies.  This unknown destruction has left one man and his male capuchin monkey live on a planet full of women.  Nothing is as it seems as York Brown looks for answers and his lost love Beth.
