Who We're Reading When We're Reading Murakami

by David Karashima

An astonishingly thorough and illuminating look at the way that Murakami became recognized, and at all the people—translators in particular—who made it possible by the decisions they made. Karashima's book is a hands-on and very frank look at the social construction of a literary reputation. — Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World and Raymond Carver's What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
