Publisher's Summary

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-listen for fans of this masterful author and for the increasing number of people who find a similar satisfaction in running.


What the Critics Say

"Hugely enjoyable.... You don’t have to run a marathon to be captivated." (Sunday Telegraph)
"This is my most recent inspirational find.... Murakami makes me want to write hard and run far and fast." (Easy Living)

Not really a running book

Book mixed with the writer's other life experiences. I was expecting a lot more emphasis on the running part with more details but didn't really get that. Whilst I have no issue with the writer talking about his novel writing experiences, how he started etc but the book title is about running l, not novel writing.
