The midnight hour is approaching in an almost empty dinner all night.Mari sips her coffee and looks up from a book like a young man, musician, encroaching on her loneliness.Both of them missed the last house train.The musician intends to rehearse with his jazz band all night long, the Mari is just as indifferent and content to read, smoke and coffee drink until dawn.They realize that they learned through Eri, Mari’s sister-in-law.The musician leaves soon with a promise to return before dawnShortly after Mari will be interrupted a second time by a daughter of the Alphaville hotel.a Chinese prostitute was injured by a client, the girl heard Mari speaks Chinese fluently and asks for help.Meanwhile, Eri is at home and sleeps in a deep, heavy sleep that is “too perfect, too pure” to be normal; pulse and breathing at the required lower level.She has been in this state of sleeplessness for two months; ERI has become the classic myth – a beautiful asleep.But tonight as the digital clock shows 00:00 that a slight electric crackling is noticeable, a hint of life shimmers on the TV screen, even though the TV jack has been pulled.Murakami, famous master of the surrealist, returns with a magnificent new novel, where the familiar can become familiar after midnight, even to those who develop in the early hours.With After Dark, we move beyond twilightStrange nocturnal events, or something of the night.
