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. Superbly read by Rupert Degas with an edge of Raymond Chandler.

"With the help of a fluid, slangy translation, Murakami emerges as a wholly original talent." (Publishers Weekly)"The intimacy and immediacy of the way the story is read by Rupert Degas carries the listener through the unlikely scenario of an all-knowing intelligence that is incarnate in a sheep with a star on its back, possessing one man after another in order to achieve world domination." Christina Hardyment, The Times
