I'm close to finishing Haruki Murakami's Hardboiled Wonderland and The End of the World, which consists two stories (that are actually related). In Murakami style, it is a story of an ordinary and mundane life turned into a surreal adventure as our protagonist explores an underground world below Tokyo in one story, and is trapped in a strange town where there are no shadows in the other.

It is filled with postmodern inter-references as is to be expected of a Murakami novel and is a decent read while not as impacting as The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle or Kafka on the Shore.
