The Wind-up Bird Chronicle

I first read this surrealist triumph by Haruki Murakami at Uni on the recommendation of my Writing lecturer and it was definitely a moment of amazement – I’m indebted to him for that (at the very least) and am about to re-read the book when the holidays start and thought this might serve as a warm up.

I get some images and I connect one piece to another. That’s the story line. Then I explain the story line to the reader. You should be very kind when you explain something. If you think, It’s okay; I know that, it’s a very arrogant thing. Easy words and good metaphors; good allegory. So that’s what I do. I explain very carefully and clearly

– Murakami.
