An Interview with Haruki Murakami

Omnivoracious just posted my interview with Murakami, which was fun, especially asking him this question:

Time Magazine recently provided a list of your novels ranked by the number of cat appearances in them. When you were a beginning writer, is this one of the future realities you anticipated, and do you find it funny or odd that someone was tasked with counting Murakami cats?

    Lovely interview and particularly so as I recently read 1Q84 and spent a week in Murakami’s special world. Nice to know he doesn’t know what is going to happen next in his novels either.

    I am madly jealous of you being able to interview one of my heroes. That said, awesome interview.
