Haruki Murakami

Born in Kobe in 1949, Haruki Murakami studied Greek drama before managing a jazz bar in Tokyo from 1974 to 1981. His third novel, A Wild Sheep Chase, earned the Noma Literary Award for New Writers and ended his career at the jazz bar. His next novel, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, won the prestigious Tanizaki Prize. In 1996, Murakami received the Yomiuri Literary Award for Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. In addition to being a prolific writer of novels and short stories, he is also known as a skillful translator of Scott Fitzgerald, Raymond Carver, John Irving, Paul Theroux, and other American contemporary authors. His work has been translated into thirty-eight languages, and he has taught at Princeton and Tufts Universities.
