    Haruki Murakami's Lecture - 08

    Late last year, I made it to his lecture at UC Berkeley, CA. I'm a huge fan, read every single book he published in Japanese. His lecture was awesome, although I was a bit bummed that it was in English. His English was OK, but not nearly fluent that he could have gone more into...
