Some theatre each day keeps the doctor away…

Still Kicking

It would seem that Stoppard has changed agents, but I think it’s only to do with managing his movie stuff in the US.  One certainly hopes so, otherwise the address I have to send the fan mail to will probably be defunct.  (Ah, what opportunities we lose when fingers don’t get raised!)

Murakami, I found out yesterday, has released a new book as well.  It’s called “Shikisai wo motanai Tasak Tsukuru to, Kare no Junrei no Toshi”, which I would render as “The colorless Tsukuru Tasaki and his year of the pilgrimage”.  (Okay, I lie – I couldn’t translate that – my Japanese isn’t anywhere near good enough.  But I certainly like the sound of the title.  Admittedly, if I saw it on a book cover of an author I didn’t know, I’d probably think that the title was overselling the book (and therefore not pick the book up), but love alters all opinions, doesn’t it?)

I wonder how long it will be before the English translation is done?  And I’ll probably have to buy it at full retail price – or the new-release price, anyway – as you tend to have to do if you want to buy things as soon as they’re released.  Oh, what woe this treacherous life casts over me!  Oh woe, oh woe!  (Queue dramatic music.)

100/whatever in JM.  Meant to finish it today, but got a bit sidetracked with Japanese dramas.  Considering buying myself a few manga, for the first time in my life, too.  Hmm.
