Kafka on the shore by angela-tang Kafka on the shore by angela-tang
'Kafka on the Shore' by Angela Tang, 2010
inspired by Murakami's novel 'Kafka on the Shore'. there's a song in the book called Kafka on the shore. Here are the lyrics:
You sit at the edge of the world,
I am in a crater that is no more.
Words without letters
Standing in the shadow of the door.

The moon shines down on a sleeping lizard,
Little fish rain down from the sky.
Outside the window there are soldiers,
steeling themselves to die.

(Refrain)

Kafka sits in a chair by the shore,
Thinking of the pendulum that moves the world,
it seems.
When your heart is closed,
The shadow of the unmoving Sphinx,
Becomes a knife that pierces your dreams.

The drowning girl's fingers
Search for the entrance stone, and more.
Lifting the hem of her azure dress,
She gazes---
at Kafka on the shore.


btw, it's a great novel, read it!
