I've finally read this! Now I can answer all those NYT crossword questions, FTW! Oh yeah, it was the Pulitzer winner for 1932. And I liked it.
71. What I Talk About When I Talk About Running: A Memoir - Haruki Murakami, translated by Philip Gabriel
A book about Murakami's relationship with running, and then a little bit about life and fiction writing and himself. A really enjoyable book even if you aren't a runner (made me want to be!) so I think a person who could actually relate would really like this. Especially a long-distance runner.
