Haruki Murakami

You’ll remember from my last post that I am midway through the novel Norwegian Wood by the Japanese author Haruki Murakami.  This is the first novel I’ve read by him, and I suppose I shouldn’t say that too loudly, as he is tipped by some to be the next Nobel Prize winner.  Where have I been?

Now I read that he is set to “take the West by storm” with a 1000-page book bound as a trilogy entitled 1Q84.  Here’s the link to the article; I am definitely going to keep my eye on this one.

And something else about Murakami that makes me want to get to know him better:  he’s a marathon runner!
