A New Murakami

I bought a Murakami Haruki's new book. The book was a collection of essays. He wrote how he became a writer, how he writes novels and what brings him to write. 
They were very interesting essays and I was really happy to read his book especially in Japanese. He has lots of foreign fans and they are eager to read his works in Japanese. 
He wrote his thoughts on literary awards. He said that he doesn't care about awards. The most important thing is the work itself. No one can remember a literary award three years ago, even if it was the Nobel prize. But a good novel will be remaining in the readers. I'm totally agree with that.
