From the New York Times bestselling author—a gripping novel of late night encounters that’s “hypnotically eerie, sometimes even funny, but most of all … [a book] that keeps ratcheting up the suspense” (The Washington Post Book World).

Nineteen-year-old Mari is waiting out the night in an anonymous Denny’s when she meets a young man who insists he knows her older sister, thus setting her on an odyssey through the sleeping city. In the space of a single night, the lives of a diverse cast of Tokyo residents—models, prostitutes, mobsters, and musicians—collide in a world suspended between fantasy and reality. Utterly enchanting and infused with surrealism, After Dark is a thrilling account of the magical hours separating midnight from dawn.
Staff pick by Adriana:
After Dark is a tale of late night encounters that take place during the course of a single, hazy night, following our main character Mari, as she navigates the magical hours that separate midnight from dawn. With a sleeping Tokyo as backdrop and a diverse cast of characters, Murakami masterfully crafts a world that blends the realist with the surrealist, as if suspended between reality and fantasy.
