The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami

Book cover for The Elephant Vanishes
A man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald's in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard. By turns haunting and hilarious, this book is further proof of Murakami's ability to cross the border between separate realities - and to come back bearing treasure.
