  • "Eiji Miyake comes to Tokyo looking for the father who abonded him as a child, but he soon makes powerful enemies."@en
  • "A Booker Prize finalist, this is the story of a young innocent's exhilarating misadventures in Tokyo while searching for the father he never knew."@en
  • ""In outward form, Number9Dream is a Dickensian coming -of-age journey: Young dreamer Eiji Miyake, from remote rural Japan, thrust out on his own by his sister's death and his mother's breakdown, comes to Tokyo in pursuit of the father who abandoned him. Stumbling around this strange, awesome city, he trips over and crosses - through a hidden destiny or just monstrously bad luck - a number of its secret power centers." From the bookjacket."
  • "Een jongeman komt van het platteland naar Tokio, waar hij tijdens zijn zoektocht naar zijn vader, die hij nooit heeft gekend, betrokken raakt bij allerlei bizarre en gewelddadige avonturen."
  • "Suspense fiction. As Eiji Miyake's twentieth birthday nears, he sets out for the seething metropolis of Tokyo to find the father he has never met. There, he begins a thrilling, whirlwind journey where dreams, memories and reality collide then diverge as Eiji is caught up in a feverish succession of encounters by turn bizarre, hilarious and shockingly dangerous. But until Eiji has fallen in love and exorcised his childhood demons, the belonging he craves will remain, tantalizingly, just beyond his grasp."
  • "Eiji Miyake arrives in a sprawling Japanese metropolis to track down the father he has never met. But the city is a mapless place if you are 18, broke, and the only person you can trust is John Lennon. His 8-week hunt plunges into the hinterland between the city and the mind, where a Polish art movie is no less real than the coffee in front of him and letters from an Imperial Army soldier are signposts to next week, and where he crosses paths with numerologists, station masters, gateballers, hostesses, organ harvesters and insane chefs. Philosophical, colorful, sometimes violent, this is a dazzling novel about image, control and memory."@en
