Waterstones Says

A short, brilliant book which gives a remarkable insight into the mind of a supremely gifted writer, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running details Murakakami’s athletic obsession and how it informs his art. Philosophical and reflective, this is a joyous celebration of physical activity and its mental results.

Haruki Murakami is one of the world’s favourite novelists and responsible for wonderful fiction like The Wind Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore, but here he chronicles his obsession for running and offers his fans a short but wonderful journey into a mind which shapes such beautiful books.

His first forays into triathlon and his initial fears of the open water swim will resonate with many and his admiration of those who seem naturally designed to run is also a strong theme. A fabulous little book which should be on any runner’s to-read list.
