    The midnight hour approaches in an almost empty all-night diner. Mari sips her coffee and glances up from a book as a young man, a musician, intrudes on her solitude. Both have missed the last train home. The musician has plans to rehearse with his jazz band all night, Mari is equally unconcerned and content to read, smoke and drink coffee until dawn. They realise they've been acquainted through Eri, Mari's beautiful sister. The musician soon leaves with a promise to return. Shortly afterwards Mari will be interrupted a second time by a girl from the Alphaville Hotel; a Chinese prostitute has been hurt by a client, the girl has heard Mari speaks fluent Chinese and requests her help.Meanwhile Eri is at home and sleeps a deep, heavy sleep that is 'too perfect, too pure' to be normal; pulse and respiration at the lowest required level. She has been in this soporific state for two months; Eri has become the classic myth - a sleeping beauty. But tonight as the digital clock displays 00:00 a faint electrical crackle is perceptible, a hint of life flickers across the TV screen, though the television's plug has been pulled. Murakami, acclaimed master of the surreal, returns with a stunning new novel, where the familiar can become unfamiliar after midnight, even to those that thrive in small hours. With "After Dark" we journey beyond the twilight. Strange nocturnal happenings, or a trick of the night?

    O avtorju

    -Haruki Murakami-

    Haruki Murakami se je rodil v Kobeju leta 1949, študiral je književnost, delal v trgovini s ploščami, med leti 1974 in 1981 pa je imel jazzovski klub v Tokiu. Murakami pogosto pripoveduje anekdoto, da se je za pisateljevanje odločil na dan, ko je na stadionu gledal bejzbolsko tekmo. In spremembe so bile radikalne: začel je pisati in hkrati tudi teči. Življenje je uravnal zelo asketsko, leta 1986 pa se je z ženo preselil v Združene države in tam živel do terorističnega napada s sarinom na Tokijski podzemni železnici, ko se je vrnil domov.

    Murakamijevi romani so si v obdobju, ko je začel teči in postajal pri tem vedno bolj vztrajen, prislužili svetovno slavo. Ljubi moj Sputnik, Južno od meje, zahodno od sonca, Norveški gozd, Kafka na obali, Divja jaga za ovco, IQ84 in drugi so bili zanimivi tudi za filmsko industrijo, predvsem pa za bralce na Zahodu, zato velja za najbolj prevajanega japonskega prozaista.
