Inspired by...Baseball?

The tale of author Haruki Murakami is that of legends. The story goes that he was suddenly prompted to be a novelist while he was at a baseball game. In the split second it took a batter to hit a pitch, Murakami supposedly became inspired and returned home that same night to launch the beginning of what would turn out to be a successful writing career. The result of this inspiration appeared to the world in the form of his first novel Hear the Wind Sing and has been followed by countless works since. Recently, the New York Times  published this charming article about delving into the Murakami’s imagination and the danger of taking his literature too literally. It is a fun read and gives us a chance to learn more about this fascinating author!  Enjoy! :)
