Tour Murakami's Workspace

Tour Murakami's Workspace

Just in case you needed a distraction from your own desk, you can take a tour of author Haruki Murakami's workspace.

He's got a pretty good collection of stubby pencils, plus over 10,000 vinyl records to keep him company. 

Aside from the items Murakami explains, eagle-eyed readers will be able to spot details that might clue them in to Murakami's process, including what looks like a kitchen timer, gigantic speakers, a Moomin mouse pad, and an open copy of Raymond Chandler's The High Window. 

The author's web site is very exploratory and offers some great pieces, including Murakami's photographic tour of Tokyo, which was designed to give American readers an idea of the city. Plus, a collection of reader's guides just in case you're headed to a book club meeting, and playlists of songs featured in Murakami's books.

Murakami's newest English-translated work, Wind/Pinball, was released just this month.
