村上春树,出生于1949年,是日本现代著名小说家。他以经典的村上式风格开启文学写作的生涯,在三十余年内创造出世界上最独具一格的作品。他的作品为他摘得无数桂冠,也为读者提供了洞悉日本社会风貌的窗口。他说自己不写作时是个地道的普通人,但这位在全世界都享有盛誉的小说家,再普通,也必定是个不普通的普通人。


That first visit to Murakami took place on a muggy midmorning, midweek, in the middle of a summer. I had come to speak with Murakami, Japan\'s leading novelist, about the translation into English of his massive 1Q84—a book that has already sold millions of copies across Asia. At age 62, three decades into his career, Murakami has established himself as the unofficial laureate of Japan—arguably its chief imaginative ambassador, in any medium, to the world: the primary source, for many millions of readers, of the texture and shape of his native country.


This, no doubt, comes as an enormous surprise to everyone involved. Murakami has always considered himself an outsider in his own country. He was born into one of the strangest sociopolitical environments in history: Kyoto in1949—the former imperial capital of Japan in the middle of America\'s postwar occupation. \"It would be difficult to find another cross-cultural moment,\" the historian John W. Dower has written of late-1940s Japan, \"more intense, unpredictable, ambiguous, confusing, and electric than this one.\" Substitute \"fiction\" for \"moment\" in that sentence and you have a perfect description of Murakami\'s work. The basic structure of his stories—ordinary life lodged between incompatible worlds—is also the basic structure of his first life experience.


Murakami\'s Career as a Writer


Murakami grew up, mostly, in the suburbs surrounding Kobe, an international port defined by thedin改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载of many languages. As a teenager, he immersed himself in American culture, especiallyhard-boiled detective novels改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载and jazz. He internalized their attitude of cool rebellion, and in his early 20s, instead of joining the ranks of a large corporation, Murakami grew out his hair and his beard, married against his parents’ wishes, took out a loan and opened a jazz club in Tokyo called Peter Cat. He spent nearly 10 years absorbed in the day-to-day operations of the club.


His career as a writer began in classic Murakami style: out of nowhere, in the most ordinary possible setting, a mystical truth suddenly descended upon him and changed his life forever. Murakami, age 29, was sitting in the outfield at his local baseball stadium, drinking a beer, when a batter—an American transplant named Dave Hilton—hit a double. It was a normal-enough play, but as the ball flew through the air, anepiphany改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载struck Murakami. He realized, suddenly, that he could write a novel. He had never felt a serious desire to do so before, but now it was overwhelming. And so he did: after the game, he went to a bookstore, bought a pen and some paper and over the next couple of months produced Hear the Wind Sing, a slim,elliptical改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载tale of a nameless 21-year-old narrator, his friend called the Rat and a four-fingered woman. Nothing much happens, but the Murakami voice is there from the start: a strange broth ofennui改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载and exoticism. In just 130 pages, the book manages to reference a thorough cross-section of Western culture and contains not a single reference to a work of Japanese art in any medium.


Murakami submitted Hear the Wind Sing for a prestigious new writers’ prize and won. After another year and another novel, Murakami sold his jazz club in order to devote himself, full time, to writing.


For 30 years now, he has lived amonkishly改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载regimented改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载life, each facet of which has been precisely engineered to help him produce his work. He runs or swims long distances almost every day, eats a healthful diet, goes to bed around 9 p.m. and wakes up, without an alarm, around 4 a.m.—at which point he goes straight to his desk for five to six hours of concentrated writing.

1Q84: a Strange \"Comprehensive Novel\"


According to Murakami, 1Q84 is just an amplification of one of his most popular short stories, On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning, which is several pages long. \"Basically, it\'s the same,\" he told me. \"A boy meets a girl. They have separated and are looking for each other. It\'s a simple story. I just made it long.\" 1Q84 is not, actually, a simple story. Its plot may not even be fully summarizable—at least not in the space of a magazine article.


For decades now, Murakami has been talking about working himself up to write what he calls a \"comprehensive novel\"—something on the scale ofThe Brothers Karamazov改变世界的名人:笔尖上的舞者pdf/doc/txt格式电子书下载. This seems to be what he has attempted with 1Q84: a grand, third-person, all-encompassing mega-novel. It is a book full of anger and violence and disaster and weird sex and strange new realities, a book that seems to want to hold all of Japan inside of it—a book that, even despite its occasional awkwardness, makes you marvel, reading it, at all the strange folds a single human brain can hold.


I told Murakami that I was surprised to discover, after so many su
