What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami

BIOGRAPHY

An intimate look at writing, running, and the incredible way they intersect, from the incomparable, bestselling author Haruki Murakami.While simply training for New York City Marathon would be enough for most people, Haruki Murakami's decided to write about it as well. The result is a beautiful memoir about his intertwined obsessions with running and writing, full of vivid memories and insights, including the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is rich and revelatory, both for fans of this masterful yet guardedly private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in athletic pursuit.

    I learned about traffic violations, and that everyone paid more attention to the book than me.

    I'm delighted to know about this book even though I will not be able to attend the meeting on Monday. People who like this book will probably also enjoy reviewing "Wild Mind" and "Writing Down the Bones" by Natalie Goldberg, who also explores the ways running and writing intersect.

    Hope this location works for everyone! There's food, coffee, and beer available. Lots of parking and right off a DART stop too.
