  • "Midnight approaches in an almost empty 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. Meanwhile Eri is at home and sleeps a deep, heavy sleep, pulse and respiration at the lowest level. She has been in this soporfic state for two months. But tonight as the digital clock displays 00:00, a faint electrical crackle is perceptible and a hint of life flickers across the TV screen."
  • "During seven hours of a Tokyo night one sister sleeps, while the other, a student reading quietly in a Denny's until she is lead to night people who are radically different from her."

  • "A short, sleek novel of encounters set in the witching hours of Tokyo between midnight and dawn, and every bit as gripping as Haruki Murakami's masterworks The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. At its center are two sisters: Yuri, a fashion model sleeping her way into oblivion; and Mari, a young student soon led from solitary reading at an anonymous Denny's into lives radically alien to her own: those of a jazz trombonist who claims they've met before; a burly female love hotel manager and her maidstaff; and a Chinese prostitute savagely brutalized by a businessman. These night people are haunted by secrets and needs that draw them together more powerfully than the differing circumstances that might keep them apart, and it soon becomes clear that Yuri's slumber - mysteriously tied to the businessman plagued by the mark of his crime - will either restore or annihilate her."
  • "A story about two sisters set in Tokyo one night from midnight till dawn exploring the themes of loneliness and secrecy."
  • """"Afterdark""--Nach einer Jazznummer - heißt der neueste Roman von Haruki Murakami. Und: ""Afterdark"" ist das spannungsvolle Buch einer Nacht, erzählt wie durch das Auge einer Kamera. Diese streift über das Panorama der nächtlichen Großstadt: Leuchtreklame und digitale Riesenbildschirme, Hip-Hop aus Lautsprechern, Ströme erlebnishungriger Angestellter und weißblonder Teenager in Miniröcken. Wie mit einem Zoom beobachten wir die Orte nächtlicher Handlungen, die sich dramatisch verbinden und entfalten. Wir begegnen dem jungen Mädchen Mari mit einem Musiker in der Filiale einer Restaurant-Kette sowie der Geschäftsführerin eines Love-Hotels, in dem gerade eine chinesische Prostituierte von einem Freier misshandelt wurde. Wir sehen im 24-Stunden-Supermarkt einen Büroangestellten, wie er das Handy der Chinesin aus dem Love-Hotel in ein Kühlregal legt. Und wir haben die Videoüberwachung bemerkt und dass ihm bereits der Zuhälter auf der Spur ist. Außerdem betritt der junge Musiker diesen Supermarkt und hört das fremde Handy läuten, während das wunderschöne Mädchen Eri, die Schwester von Mari, seit Monaten ununterbrochen schläft. Afterdark bleibt voller Geheimnisse. Am Ende der sich überstürzenden und mysteriösen Ereignisse schickt uns Haruki Murakamis beunruhigende Prosa in den Tag zurück.""
