Haruki Murakami was born in 1949 in Kyoto, Japan. He joined Waseda University’s drama program in 1968 and spent his university days during the turbulent period of Zenkyōtō activism. His 1979 debut novel, “Hear the Wind Sing,” was awarded the Gunzo Literature Prize, followed by his 1982 work “A Wild Sheep Chase,” which won the Noma Literary Newcomer’s Prize, and 1985’s “Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World,” which won the Tanizaki Prize. However, his current popularity stems from his 1987 work “Norwegian Wood,” which broke sales records and established him in the public eye. Murakami’s 1994 work, “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle,” won him the Yomiuri Literary Award, and his 2005 work, “Kafka on the Shore,” became one of the few Asian works chosen for the New York Times 10 Best Books of 2005. Around five years after his work “After Dark,” “1Q84” took Japanese and Korean bookstores by storm, eventually selling more than a million copies. Other novels and essay collections, such as “Lexington Ghosts,” “Far Away Drums,” “The Foreign Language of Ultimate Sadness,” “Underground,” “Cool Hago Wild Han Baigilmong,” and “Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage” have won him acclaim from readers around the world. His 2014 short story collection, “Men Without Women,” has also been received with much enthusiasm. Murakami’s works have entered the list of bestsellers not only in the United States and Europe but also in over 40 countries around the world, including Russia, China, and other countries that tend to be less enthusiastic about foreign works. In 2006, he was awarded the Franz Kafka Prize, joining the likes of Nobel laureates such as Elfriede Jelinek and Harold Pinter. In 2009, he won the Jerusalem Prize, the greatest literary award in Israel.
