Number 9 Dream by David Mitchell

As Eiji Miyake's twentieth birthday nears, he arrives in Tokyo with a mission - to locate the father he has never met. So begins a search that takes him into the seething city's underworld, its lost property offices and video arcades, and on a journey that zigzags from reality to the realm of dreams.

But until Eiji has fallen in love and exorcised his childhood demons, the belonging he craves will remain, tantalisingly, just beyond his grasp.
