After Dark

Over the weekend, I finished the new Murakami novel, which somehow manages to be both tremendously cinematic and wildly unfilmable at the same time. (One of the main characters is actually a camera, which is a proxy for us, the audience. This causes parts of the plot to be told in first-person plural -- "point of view" is a prevailing phrase.) A few reviews: L.A. Times | San Fran Chron | Wash Post.
