An elephant vanishes from the local enclosure in which it was housed and one man may know why.
This had the feel of a Millhauser story, but by the end it's Murakami-esque. The resolution leaves something to be desired. Or perhaps the elephant represents a certain culture in Japan. Or something. Entertaining and surreal none the less. Unless it's nonetheless.
Can be read here even though they mistitled it The Second Bakery Attack, it's really The Elephant Vanishes.
