the asian edition of time has 10 questions with haruki murakami, you'd like to read it, so click the link.
my favorite thing he says is, "...style is very important. if prose has a natural rhythm it won't be spoiled by translation."
oh, and this too: "when i write a novel or story, i don't know what is going to happen next."
he's working on another of his long, weird love stories! yippee!!
