    I Can't Even Begin To Describe How Much I Love This Man!!!!

    He is my favourite author of all time. The first book I read of his was Kafka on the Shore. That got me hooked. Then I read After Dark, a brilliant BRIlLIANT book and then it was Norwegian Wood. Then after that I read South of the Border West of the Sun. After that I read Hard...

    Kafka On The Shore

    This book hit me hard...in a good way. Murakami has a way of penetrating the depths of my consciousness like no other writer can...and I think I'm in love with Miss Saeki :)

    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...

    actually, as a great piece of magic-realism and kinda experimental narrative and like pretty much all great literature, i'm sure people read wind-up bird and took away an entirely different story than the one I feel like I read. But I've still told my friends that to completely...
