Who We're Reading When We're Reading Murakami

by David Karashima

Writer/editor Luke and novelist/translator Karashima have pulled together a diverse collection of new and previously published nonfiction, fiction, poetry, and a manga to create "an artistic record" of a people's response to an unimaginable disaster. The writers are mostly Japanese--including major names like Yoko Ogawa and Ryu Murakami--translated into English by an impressive list of powerhouse translators. . . . the impetus behind each individual piece is heartfelt. — Terry Hong, The Christian Science Monitor
