Number9dream by David Mitchell
This novel is an explosion of action, saturated violence, and lush, technicolor imagery. Eiji Miyaki travels to Tokyo to find his father, but what he finds is much larger, and more significant than any one man could ever be. Tokyo almost serves as another character in the novel, providing compact, neon nights and dirty drone-and-MSG-filled days. Murakami-esque and kaleidoscopic.
