These stories introduce English-language readers to the detective Bobby Potemkine and his musical dog Djinn -- and they come to us offering, among other things, mystery, romance, maritime-adventure, and a very angry noodle named Auguste.

"In three short stories with a distinct Murakami vibe, hapless investigator Bobby Potemkine threads his way through his city's meteor-shredded ruins to find out which of several women named Lili has really invented fire, what to do about an angry noodle named Auguste Diodon, and how to rescue the many baby pelicans that litter the roads. Every page introduces another curiosity in Draeger's cabinet of wonders." Publishers Weekly
