PLG Nonfiction Book Group discusses What I Talk about When I Talk about Running
Led by PLG store manager Geo, our nonfiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For January, the group discusses Haruki Murakami’s What I Talk about When I Talk about Running, an intimate look at writing, running, and the incredible way they intersect. While simply training for New York City Marathon would be enough for most people, Haruki Murakami decided to write about it as well. The result is a beautiful memoir about his intertwined obsessions with running and writing, full of vivid memories and insights, including the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk about When I Talk about Running is perfect for athletes and non-athletes alike, from the incomparable, bestselling author Haruki Murakami.
