Murakami will always be weird, even if his work is nonfiction. That is what makes him so delightful as an author, a surreality in all things that still seems to make sense.

Murakami could write a menu or directions on how to assemble a box and it would be the best fucking read in the history of the world...

@3 -- you meant to write "important", right? I agree -- it's the best 33 1/3 I've read.

I'm hearing a lot of buzz about THE GARDEN OF LAST DAYS by Andre Dubus III - and that was before Stephen King's article in EW! Pick it up if you haven't and it's available!
