What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
|Author:||Haruki Murakami; Philip Gabriel (Translator)|
The first, fascinating insight into the life of this internationally bestselling writer
"Murakami gives me a reason. It might seem romantic, but it's true. I had to run...but I didn't enjoy running. I do enjoy, however, running with Murakami." -- Ioan Marc Jones * Huffington Post UK * "Murakami distils his own process of writing fiction in this layered and meditative memoir." * Big Issue * "A wonderful exploration of work, place and life's meanders." * Geographical * "Hugely enjoyable... You don't have to have run a marathon to be captivated" * Sunday Telegraph * "Comical, charming and philosophical...an excellent memoir" * GQ *
Haruki Murakami was born in Kyoto in 1949 and now lives near Tokyo. His work has been translated into forty-two languages. The most recent of his many honours is the Franz Kafka Prize.
