Summary Note She has entered, she realises, a parallel existence, which she calls '1Q84' - 'Q' is for 'question mark'. A world that bears a question. Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghost writing project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unravelled. As Aomame's and Tengo's narratives converge over the course of this single year, we learn of the profound and tangled connections that bind them ever closer: a beautiful, dyslexic teenage girl with a unique vision; a mysterious religious cult that instigated a shoot-out with the metropolitan police; a reclusive, wealthy dowager who runs a shelter for abused women; a hideously ugly private investigator; a mild-mannered yet ruthlessly efficient bodyguard; and a peculiarly insistent television-fee collector. A love story, a mystery, a fantasy, a novel of self-discovery, a dystopia to rival George Orwell's, '1Q84' is Haruki Murakami's most ambitious undertaking yet: an instant best seller in his native Japan, and a tremendous feat of imagination from one of our most revered contemporary writers.
