Kafka on the Shore (海辺のカフカUmibe no Kafuka) is a 2002 novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami.

Japanese novel translated into Arabic Language.

The odd-numbered chapters tell the 15-year-old Kafka's story as he runs away from his father's house to escape and to embark upon a quest to find his mother and sister.

After a series of adventures, he finds shelter in a quiet, private library in Takamatsu, run by the distant and aloof Miss Saeki and the intelligent and more welcoming Ohshima. There he spends his days reading the unabridged Richard Burton's translation of "One Thousand one night" and the collected works of Natsume Souseki, until the police begin inquiring after him in connection with the murder of his father that he does not know he has committed. Ohshima brings him to the forests of Kochi, where Kafka is ultimately healed.

Printed in Lebanon.
