First published in Japan init was translated into English in It is salvaj independent sequel to Pinball,and the third book in the so-called “Trilogy of the Rat”.

La Caza del Carnero Salvaje

It won the Noma Literary Newcomer’s Prize. The book is part mystery and part magical realism with a postmodern twist.

This quasi-detective tale follows an unnamed, chain-smoking narrator and his adventures in Tokyo and Hokkaido in The story begins when the recently divorced protagonist, an advertisement executive, publishes a harumi of a pastoral scene sent to him in hqruki confessional letter by his long lost friend, ‘The Rat. The Boss’ secretary tells him that a strange sheep ealvaje a star shaped birthmark, pictured in the advertisement, was in some way the secret de of the Boss’ power and that he has two months to find that sheep or his career and life will be ruined.

The narrator and his girlfriend, who possesses magically seductive and muraksmi perceptive ears, travel to the north of Japan to find that sheep and his vagabond friend. As he discovers that he is chasing an unknowable power that has been exerting its influence for decades, he encounters figures from his own past, unusual characters, and those who have encountered the sheep before.

A Wild Sheep Chase received praise from Western literary critics, such as Herbert Mitgang of The New York Times Book Reviewwho praised the novel in a review, describing it as “Youthful, slangy, political and allegorical”, and concluding, “What makes ”A Wild Sheep Chase” so appealing is the author’s ability ssalvaje strike common chords between the modern Japanese and American middle classes, especially the younger generation, and to do so in stylish, swinging language.


Murakami’s novel is a welcome debut by a talented writer who should be discovered by readers on this end of the Pacific. Murakami recalls that the editors of Gunzoa Japanese literary magazine that had previously published his works, “didn’t like A Wild Sheep Chase at all” because it was unorthodox for novels of the time.

Popular reception, however, was positive and he credits this as his “real starting point” as a novelist.

All three books follow the sometimes surreal adventures of an unnamed first-person narrator and his friend, nicknamed ‘The Rat’. All three novels begin from or refer back to November 25,the day on which Japanese author, poet, playwright and right-wing activist Yukio Mishima committed seppuku following a failed coup attempt at haruji headquarters of Japan’s Self Defense Forces.

The sequel, Dance, Dance, Dancecontinues the adventures of the unnamed protagonist.

Locations and characters from A Hwruki Sheep Chase recur, most notably the Dolphin Hotel, the narrator’s unnamed girlfriend, and the mysterious Sheep Man.

However, its plot, tone, and the majority of the characters are sufficiently different so that Dance Dance Dance can be seen as separate from the “Trilogy of the Rat.
