After receiving major critical-acclaim for his new novel, Haruki Murakami has decided to get over his publicity-shy trait. The author of “1q84”, “Kafka on the Shore” and the more recent “Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage” has given a public speech at the “Observe soul, write soul” seminar.

The seminar took place in the ancient city of Kyoto’s University. This date was quite a special one for Murakami fans because the author who is known for being very reserved was giving his first public-speech in 18 years. There were even polls whereby 500 Haruki Murakami fans got tickets to attend the seminar.

The author explained, with a mixture of tact and eccentricity, why he is of such a reserved nature. "Please think of me like an endangered species and just observe me quietly from far away," he said. "If you try to talk to me or touch me casually, I may get intimidated and bite you. So please be careful”. Haruki Murakami pointed out during the seminar that he does not like the idea that people may recognise him easily on the street.

 

Haruki Murakami at the seminar

Haruki Murakami’s appearance in this seminar was not chosen on a whim. Indeed, the author reserves his public appearances for special occasions. Last time the latter made a public appearance in Japan was at book-readings held in the wake of a Japanese earthquake in 1995. This time, the author has chosen to speak in public because “Observe soul, write soul” was held to establish a literary prize in memory of late clinical psychologist Hayao Kawai. Kawai was one of Murakami’s old friends.

This seminar was held a little less than a month after the release of Haruki Murakami’s latest novel, "Shikisai wo Motanai Tazaki Tsukuru to Kare no Junrei no Toshi (Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage)". This new novel is expected to become one of the fastest and best-selling Japanese novels of the past decade.
