What I Talk about When I Talk about RunningBy Haruki Murakami
In 1982 Murakami began running to keep fit. Here, he reflects on his running experiences. Equal parts travelogue, training log, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, this is a must read for fans of this masterful writer, and for the increasing number of people who find a similar satisfaction in running.
