Murakami is a Japanese writer but he is also a “global” one, meaning that his works are best read not as expressions of Japanese culture, but as examinations of questions that concern all humanity.
Murakami was born in 1949 in Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital, to a middle-class family with a vested interest in the national culture. His father was a teacher of Japanese literature. His grandfather was a Buddhist monk.
From an early age, Murakami seems to have turned against the culture and traditions that surrounded him. Having no interest in Japanese literature, he devoured 19th-century European authors.
Murakami Haruki is world-renowned as a novelist of magical realist fiction. He began writing while running a jazz bar in Tokyo after finishing college.
