    Hugely enjoyable...you don't have to have run a marathon to be captivated' Sunday Telegraph. 'There can never have been a book quite like this memoir of running and writing before. In its self-contained way, it is nothing less than an inspiration' Evening Standard. In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he'd completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing. Equal parts travelogue, training log, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and settings ranging from Tokyo's Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston. Funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a must read for fans of this masterful yet private writer as well as for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

    O avtorju

    -Haruki Murakami-

    Haruki Murakami se je rodil v Kobeju leta 1949, študiral je književnost, delal v trgovini s ploščami, med leti 1974 in 1981 pa je imel jazzovski klub v Tokiu. Murakami pogosto pripoveduje anekdoto, da se je za pisateljevanje odločil na dan, ko je na stadionu gledal bejzbolsko tekmo. In spremembe so bile radikalne: začel je pisati in hkrati tudi teči. Življenje je uravnal zelo asketsko, leta 1986 pa se je z ženo preselil v Združene države in tam živel do terorističnega napada s sarinom na Tokijski podzemni železnici, ko se je vrnil domov.

    Murakamijevi romani so si v obdobju, ko je začel teči in postajal pri tem vedno bolj vztrajen, prislužili svetovno slavo. Ljubi moj Sputnik, Južno od meje, zahodno od sonca, Norveški gozd, Kafka na obali, Divja jaga za ovco, IQ84 in drugi so bili zanimivi tudi za filmsko industrijo, predvsem pa za bralce na Zahodu, zato velja za najbolj prevajanega japonskega prozaista.
