Thanks for the notice! I had wondered if he was a musician first, since so many of his characters are so emotionally tuned with music.

Maju | 1 comments Hi Kelly,

Murakami owned a Jazz Cafe back in early '80s until his first novel won a prize in Japan. I've read all of his books in Japanese, and many of his essays (not translated to English) talks about his passion for music - not only Jazz but also classical, rock, pop, etc. You are so right! Murakami may not be a musician but definitely has a heart of one!
