ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB

Most of us probably have had the unpleasant experience of being collared by a friend who is intent on sharing the details of some passion --- whether it’s golf, stamp collecting or scuba diving --- about which we know little and care less. As a non-runner, I approached Haruki Murakami’s memoir with some of the trepidation that attends those conversations. Instead I found a spritely, engaging story of one writer’s quarter-century encounter with serious running and how that pursuit has threaded its way meaningfully through his life. Focusing in the main on the period from August 2005 through the New York City Marathon on November 6, 2005 (his 24th marathon since 1982), Murakami blends snippets of autobiography, descriptions of his running life and insights on the craft of writing into an entertaining mix.

Murakami’s small memoir didn’t inspire me to leap from my chair and lace up my Nikes, but you don’t have to be a runner to enjoy this reflective book by one of Japan’s most prominent contemporary novelists.
