The Elephant Vanishes: Stories: Haruki MurakamiIn The Elephant Vanishes the narrator is reading the newspaper when a large headline catches his eye: ELEPHANT MISSING IN TOKYO SUBURBS. According to the article, the elephant and his keepers absence was first noticed at two oclock in the afternoon of May 18; prior to that, nothing unusual about their behavior had been detected.
