    From the best-selling author of Kafka on the Shore comes this rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running and the integral impact both have made on his life. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers Murakami's four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon. Settings range from Tokyo, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston, among young women who outpace him.

    an interesting and insightful personal account of murakami's running practice that also offered thoughtful reflections on his writing. (as an unexpected personal side note, this book got me excited about running again!)

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    Great job on ALL the characters, especially Lenard and also Margo's mother.


    If you could take any character from The Marriage Plot out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Mitchell.


    Any additional comments?

    Brought me right back to the '80s.
