I'm off to check it out. I had a colleague in NYC who translated hip hop recordings from English to Japanese. I was always fascinated by the amount of skill it actually entailed; with so many idioms and expressions that don't fully translate it takes a well-versed, creative translator to produce a cohesive end product.
I so keep meaning to read his novels. They are always out at my local library but everyone whose reading tastes I trust love him!
It's my ex-roommate Adrienne's favorite book of all-time. I tried reading it years ago but couldn't get into it. I may give it another go. =)
Great book.... you might also like his other book Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World.. that one is good too!
This was the first Murakami I ever read and now he's one of my favorite authors! BTW, love your Etsy.
I love Murakami too! So unlike anyone else...Have you read Norwegian Wood?
I had mixed feelings about this book... I read it over a almost a year span. I couldn't get into it, at first... but by the end, I was hiding in the reading chair, ignoring phone calls and meal times.
