Quote of the day

Maybe when people take their eyes off them, inanimate objects become even more inanimate.
- The Wind-up Bird Chronicles, Haruki Murakami, p. 65

Let the rest of the world read 1Q84. I've still got Murakami's back-catalog to read, and by god it's about time I read it.

  1. Heh, excellent quote. I've only read Hard-boiled Wonderland and really liked it. I hope to get to Wind-up Bird and Kafka on the Shore one of these days.

  2. Hehe, glad you're enjoying yourself. Can't wait to get to 1Q84 myself, having read all that's available in English long ago. It's due for a re-read, in fact, but I just don't have the time.

  3. and, if I may say, his 'back-long' far surpasses 1Q84.
