A famous writer on running
I know they start lining up early when Haruki Murakami has a new novel hitting the stores. I’ve never read one. Younger friends have, and find him meaningful to their lives. I envy them.
This book though, What I talk About When I Talk About Running, I just read for the second time. It’s not a novel. It’s a memoir. About his writing and his running. It’s not self-centered. It’s clear and honest, and you learn things from it.
I’m gingerly starting to run again. Baby steps so far. This book helps. I recommend it, even if you aren’t running. Sports Illustrated called it ‘a brilliant meditation’.
