    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...

    Wind-up Bird Tells My Own Story

    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...

    The Most Brilliant Author I've Ever Read

    I can't even begin to explain how much I love Murakami's books. I first found him through a literary quotes community on Livejournal. The first book I read was Norweigan Wood, then I read Kafka on the Shore, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I'm just about to start South of the...
