An unusual tribute to writer Haruki Murakami

Anyone interested in Haruki Murakami, writing, minimalism, jazz, running, making unusual and artistic videos, and … volcanoes … needs to watch this tribute to the Japanese writer.

(via Electric Literature)

I really liked the last part, when she’s explaining that Murakami would sometimes write in English rather than his native Japanese because he wanted, purposefully, to limit his vocabulary.

And then Neil Young’s “Down by the River” begins. What a great song.
