rashomon and 17 other stories
we went for a walk at a fnac with my girl, to buy middlesex for her. i saw the cover of rashomon, and i instantly thought: "what the heck, seems super cool. after all it's just short stories, i love short stories!"*
i just bought it without a second thought. japan+short stories+my girl in radius of 1 meter = 100 x coolness factor.
we went home. we laid in bed. i tried to start reading the first page. it seemed super boring. i haven't opened it since. it was november '09.
nice cover though.
*i don't. i just love haruki murakami's short stories. raymond chandler just lays there, unfinished.
