Despite the fact that he drinks at the Big Time could you recomend one of his books for a first time reader?


Of course I only drink at the College In Pub (gratuitous plug) when I'm in the U-District. I think the short story collection The Elephant Vanishes is the best place to start since it will give you a good overview and an idea of what he's all about. One of the stories in that collection eventually turned into the novel The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle-which I think is his best novel.

Anders you might also be inpressed to hear that he has translated Raymon Carver and F. Scott Fitzgerald, among others, into Japanese.


Thanks Pat. And by the way, happy birthday.


Cheers, thanks.
