Halloween must have gotten in my way (ahem… excuses, excuses)!
In any event, it is high time I add Shawna’s Presentation Summary of an author perfect to be introduced on Halloween — or anytime: Haruki Marakami.
Mr. Marakami is a contemporary Japanese author of surreal fiction. Shawna described a classic Murakami story: A Japanese “everyman”, often single, who doesn’t quite fit into society, who will encounter a fantastic situation, such as a secret underground laboratory, a man possessed by a malevolent sheep, a man who can talk to cats. The protagonist never doubts the existence of the fantastic things but is skeptical about the real world.
Intrigued? We were!
