Dubbed by its critics as one of the most important novels of post-modern Japan, A Wild Sheep Chase generated a hearty group discussion around the central themes of symbolism, relevance, and sheer banality. The novel’s youthful protagonist “I” drifts through his wholly soulless and unremarkable existence of Tokyo bars, print shops and casual sexual encounters until his forced insertion into a farcical crusade in search of a starred-ovine with megalomaniac intentions. Hardback. Dust Jacket., 1990. 8vo. Fiction. Translated by Alfred Birnbaum, Pages: 301
