    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...

    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...
