Summary
This collection of stories exposes Japan as it is experienced from the inside. The stories take place in parallel worlds, not so much remote from normal life as hidden beneath its surface

Fifteen tales encompass the story of a man obsessed with the disappearance of an elephant from a local zoo and that of a young mother whose sleeplessness provides her with a foretaste of death
