First, I have never read any novels by Murakami Haruki. Do you say how come? Just like a lot of people haven't ever actually read The Social Contract and Capital: Critique of Political Economy, I had no reason to read his simply. That's all. So one day, my curiosity led me to Novelist as a Profession, an essay of Murakami Haruki.

By my first contact with Murakami Haruki's écriture, I found his writings so readable.

I don't know why he often uses unfamiliar loan words, but totally his writings steadily encroach on my body. He has many followers all over the world, which means his works are mostly readable.

Novelist as a Profession, as the title, mainly features Murakami Haruki as a pro novelist. It plainly describes many about him, like reason why he began writing novels and his faith on his professional activities. Therefore, it does not include anything unorthodox like the beginning of a relationship with his wife.

I cannot say where it leads you after reading. Some may desire to read one of his novels, and others will want to write a novel by themselves. I simply longed to read other essays by Murakami Haruki. I believe the essay has countless exits and so you're free to go anywhere after reading. In other words, his way is well ventilated.

Novelist as a Profession was written during the 3 years, 2013 to 2015. It naturally contains Murakami Haruki within the period.

I have never read his novels and then, cannot correctly judge how they are. However, I guess he is also good at essays not just novels. His fans may be mad, but he is considered to be also a profession in essays.
