This one is for the Harukists

Murakami was a front runner for the Nobel Prize in literature in 2013 but it eventually

went to Alice Munro, Now the online betting seems to have started again and he is a clear contender for 2014 Nobel Prize.

Ardent Murakami fans are called Harukists and they wait with champagne bottles before the announcement of the

Nobel Prize every year Steven Poole of The Guardian praised Murakami as “among the world’s greatest living novelists” for his works and achievements.

Three things that I find interesting about him>1. He runs marathons and has written a book about running and writing which I love.

2. He ran a jazz bar in Tokyo

3. He has a God like cult status in Japan

Remember you heard it here first- Murakami will win the Nobel Prize in 2014
