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.

    Story
    "Run Haruki, run..."

    Narrator was a great fit, totally convincing. Murakami's fiction has often left me cold but this was a pleasant and interesting journey into the psyche of a writer and runner who's fascinated about why those two pursuits intertwine so naturally. Great for listening to at the gym or...surprise surprise...whilst out running.
