Though they have help from those in the Underground Railroad, not all of them will make it out alive. See more

As is common with books of this sort of format, the quality is also a bit randomly variable. Jay Rubin's introduction is nice, as deeply reflective as it is deceptively offhand and refreshingly facetious. Richard Powers offers some intriguingly thought-provoking and speculative meditations on Murakami's fiction, globalization, and the complexity of the human brain. Many of the other articles are interesting in their own ways, though sometimes perhaps a bit unpolished and loosely organized. That said, perhaps that's an advantage. Like Murakami's fiction itself, this casual, rambling style can startlingly open up into sudden insights and instructive perspectives--plus, some sense of the fun of such a symposium comes through therein.Read more ›
