Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch

Over at the other place where they talk about books, there's an article on how Haruki Murakami is ignored by the Japanese literary establishment (oh, dear), a review of a book that's billed as Dracula-meets-The daVinci Code (oh, dear) and the formidable Michiko Kakutani calls Michael Cunningham's Specimen Days "a clunky and precious literary exercise" (oh, dear).

  • With respect (beer-driven), as I said to someone today, for some reason I LIKE your blog, even though I post anonymously.

    Just thought (beer-driven), maybe I should tell YOU that.

    No, I'm not a mad rapist and axe murderer, I just like to read.

  • Why thank you, kind Sir or Madam, as the case may be. One endeavours to provide satisfaction :)

  • hey prufrocktwo, don't think the murkami link works, its going to the same link as "A Poet as Guest at a Party of Misfits". would be keen to read the murakami article... its not surprising that he might be being ignored by the japanese literary establishment... anything new and brilliant is always a threat...
