At the moment I cannot immerse myself in reading particular subjects that interest me, e.g. philosophy or psychology. To some extent, my unbounded enthusiasm does not appear to be boundless just now. For now it is best for me to read something lighter; something that I usually enjoy whenever I leaf through my books.
I bought this anthology ages ago but, until yesterday, I had not found the perfect opportunity to savour it. It was compiled and translated by The Japan Foundation. The book contains the various informative views of novelists, critics, translators and artists alike, on Murakami’s work and his phenomenon around the world; in other words, it is a symposium on Haruki Murakami and his works of art.
