Drama. Tony Takitani is a commercial illustrator, specialising in mechanical drawings. An only child, half-estranged from his father, he isn't conscious of his own loneliness until it is unexpectedly filled by a wife, Eiko. Life hovers on the brink of fulfilment - except that Eiko buys an alarming number of clothes. And when she dies in a road accident, Tony Takitani is left with a roomful of near-new designer outfits.
