Detaljer om værket

Hvad jeg taler om når jeg taler om at løbe af Haruki Murakami (2007)

  1. 50
    Haruki Murakami and the Music of Words af Jay Rubin (Jannes)
    Jannes: If you want to know more about Murakami as a person you can either go to his own essay-style semi-biography, or you can try Rubin's more systematic and academic approach. Both are worthy of your time.
  2. 40
    The Rider af Tim Krabbé (gust)
    gust: Krabbé heeft het over wielrennen. Ook autobografisch, maar literair beter uitgewerkt dan Murakami.
  3. 30
    Født til løb : et skjult folk, en flok superatleter og det mest fantastiske løb, resten af verden aldrig så af Christopher McDougall (DeDeNoel)
    DeDeNoel: One of the best books ever about running. Murakami's book and this totally inspired me to become a runner.
  4. 10
    Once a Runner af John L. Parker (ostgut)
  5. 32
    Bench Press af Sven Lindqvist (prezzey)
    prezzey: Writers talk about the place of sports in their lives. I personally prefer Bench Press, but if you're interested in the topic, both are worth reading.
  6. 00
    Flow im Sport af Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (JuliaMaria)

    No Time to Spare: Thinking About What Matters af Ursula K. Le Guin (andomck)

Short, and well crafted by the famous novelist Haruki Murakami, this book will appeal to both runners and writers in equal measure.

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is Murakami's reflection on his many years as a runner, what running has meant to him, and given to him. Written as a series of essays as Murakami trained for the NYC Marathon, it stands out from other running books both for the easy style of his writing, and for how Murakami relates his running to his profession of writing. Among other benefits of running, Murakami says that running has provided the healthy antidote that allows him to continue to delve into the "unhealthy" elements that support the creative process of writing.

Murakami tells us that he's not really a social person, and is quite happy being by himself - a beneficial trait for both running and writing. He doesn't feel a need to give us his life story. But he does share some things - how he became a successful bar owner who sold his bar after gaining success as a writer, how he is the type of person who wants to give his all to everything he does, how he used to smoke 60 cigarettes a day, how critical he can be of himself. All of this, he feels, is reflected in how and why he runs. And, it seems, writing about running has given him the permission to share these details, and some of his personal feelings and philosophy, with all of us, despite his loner disposition. For Murakami, this is a memoir.

As someone who has done a number of marathons and triathlons myself, I can relate to just about all of what Murakami talks about when he talks about running. I really don't understand how I never knew about this book, published in 2007, until now.

I rate Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running 4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - I really liked this book and was glad I read it. I liked the easy, sometimes poetic style of writing. I recommend it. ( )

One of the surprises of the last year, to me and most people who know me, has been that I have started running a couple of times a week. Not chasing a ball in some sort of competitive fashion – running for its own sake. Unheard of. Being a big Murakami fan, I have orbited the closest thing to his memoir but kept a safe distance because of the title, fearing it would be too focused on running, per se. Finally, I felt that I was ready to take a look. Oh me of little faith, it’s Haruki Murakami and it’s wonderful. It’s accessible, it’s dinky (at 192 pages), it’s thoughtful and informative, it’s philosophical and amusing. One is a better person for reading it. What on earth was I thinking? ( )

Beautiful reflection on running and life.

Don't bother with it if you don't exercise though I guess. If you are involved in any long term committed training plan you'll get a lot out of it. The author puts into excellent prose all the various thoughts and feelings that run(!) through a runners head.

Excellent book and a truly amazing book on running.

Wonderful book!

Sometimes a bit overly descriptive, it shows how to find joy in the process of doing something but not the outcome. ( )

Lettura piacevole e scorrevolissima. Un vero e proprio inno alla perseveranza che perfeziona e contribuisce ad affinarci anche spiritualmente. Un viaggio tra esercizio fisico, scrittura e la filosofia di vita che li accomuna. ( )

You need be neither runner nor writer to find resonance in this slender but lucid meditation.
 
So what does he think about while running? The disappointing answer is not much apart from the rhythms of feet on tarmac and blood pumping round the body.
 
It is not just these perversely impressive physical feats that sharpen what might otherwise be a dull treatise on a healthful habit; Mr. Murakami's work has always combined the ordinary and the extraordinary, and this memoir is no exception.
tilføjet af Edward | RedigerThe New York Sun, Chloë Schama (Aug 13, 2008)
 
To characterize it as briefly as possible: easy on ear and mind alike, it’s the type of prose I would call sort of pretty poor. Running is “sort of a vague theme” (i.e., not just vague but vaguely vague), and the book is “a kind of memoir.” Murakami sort of likes this kind of thing, not just as an indistinct modifier but as a form of category-definition. He’s the “type of person,” “kind of person” — I lost track of the number of times this came up — who likes “sort of laid-back” music and is “sort of a brazen person” who sometimes has “a sort of arrogant attitude.”
tilføjet af dcozy | RedigerNew York Times, Geoff Dyer (Aug 10, 2008)
 
When I closed the book, I found myself fantasising not about athletic feats, but that more readily available satisfaction that Murakami evokes so tellingly: the stinging joy of a very, very cold beer.
