    Murakami is sex. Love that oddness of his books. Actually him I thought of when I wrote Magic Realism. I made the mistake of buying 1q84 as one entire paperback book, it was so hard to handle, that I put it back on my shelf and went down to the library and got book 1, 2 and 3 separately


    1Q84 was quite the behemoth. So good though. I don't know why I refer to Murakami as a guilty pleasure. He's brilliant. The Wind-up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore are still my favourites of his.

    Jorge Luis Borges is another in a similar sort of style (albeit very brief) that I adore. I probably read a short story or parable of his every other day.
    It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.

    Majdanek is a possibility between Belzec and Treblinka. An extermination pitstop.

    Dachau? Nah.. too many Germans.
