Haruki Thoughts

I’m three-quarters of the way through a book of his short stories, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, and one-quarter of the way through his newest novel, after Dark, and I can’t stop reading.

I find that there is something so utterly contemporary and surprising about his writing – reading him is like going out for the night and not having any plans – you can end up anywhere, with anybody, and it is all so vastly interesting. He reminds me of a lighter Jim Jarmusch… He is absolutely my favorite writer at the moment.

A quote from “A Perfect Day for Kangaroos,”

“I gave up and started leafing through the newspaper. I’d never once won an argument with a girl.”
