Read in August, 2008

This is a memoir and book about running AND writing. It makes me want to start training for a marathon, because the two seem, according to Murakami, inextricably linked, as if they are the key to his writing success, the key to his writing creativity and energy.

Murakami writes short stories and novels. He has, previously, published one book of nonfiction about the sarin gas attacks in Tokyo. He has never published a memoir, something this personal–and even though he doesn’t go deeply into his person life, this window into his thoughts on running do help us get to know the writer behind the stories a bit better.
