Kafka On The Shore Study Guides

  • Kafka on the Shore


    Kafka on the Shore is the story of Kafka Tamura, a teenager fleeing his home in Tokyo. This story is obscurely connected with the journey of Nakata, a mentally impaired older man who uses his ability to talk to cats to find lost pets. The two storylines begin to converge as the two men travel to the same backwater city, exploring music, books, and the nature of the human soul along the way.
