What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
by Haruki Murakami, translated by Philip Gabriel
Published: August 2009
Interesting to hear Murakami’s voice in a nonfiction, autobiography setting. While nonrunners can still appreciate this collection of anecdotes and musings, they will definitely strike a much more resonant chord with those people who are constantly pushing their bodies limits in a repetitive, mechanical way. Or people who have ever tried to write a novel.
4 out of 5 stars: Autobiographies do a great deal to humanize our idols.
