If you don’t know yet, Haruki Murakami is a Japanese novelist who won the Gunzou Literature Prize for budding writers in 1979 with his first novel, “Hear the Wind Sing”. After that, he bagged success with several of his works. If you have been carried away with his masterpiece you can agree with me that he is one of the most famous contemporary writers in the world.
If you were listening too while reading his written stories, know that he also opened eventually a small jazz bar after his college which he runs together with his wife.
“Dreaming is the day job of novelists, but sharing our dreams is a still more important task for us. We cannot be novelists without this sense of sharing something.” Haruki expressed this on his acceptance speech last Catalunya International Prize.
