Aki | 4 comments Thanks for reading. Here it goes. Okay I think that this is a Japanese short story and it involves a kid who spends a lot of time in a bakery and grows up loving the smell of fresh bread. One night he goes to a local McDonald's and force the workers to give him a bunch of cheeseburgers. I think.

Dini Hi Aki, I think you're looking for The Second Bakery Attack by Haruki Murakami. You can find the story in his short story collection, The Elephant Vanishes. Hope that helps.

Thanks for responding so quickly! I read this book years ago and I forgot what a big fan I was of Murakami's work. I can't wait to re-read this book. Thank you again!

Kind Regards,

Dini Your welcome, Aki! My sister is a Murakami fan, and I've only read half of The Elephant Vanishes because quite frankly, he confuses me at times. Haven't given up on him though...

Glad I could help,
