In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he'd completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Part travelogue, part training log and part memoir, this is a rich, revealing and satisfying book offering insight into the mind of this cult writer, and the satisfaction to be found in the discipline ofdistance running. 'A fitting and hugely enjoyable memoir for a writer concerned so much with the implausible tangents of everyday life...You don't have to run a marathon to be captivated' }Sunday Telegraph{
