The Indispensable Relationship
"...At that point, I felt that the indispensable relationship I should build in my life was not with a specific person but with an unspecified number of readers. ... I don't see my readers' faces, so in a sense my relationship with them is a conceptual one, but I've consistently considered it the most important thing in my life."
--Haruki Murakami, “The Running Novelist,” The New Yorker, June 9 & 16, 2008, p. 72
(Excerpted from his book What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.)
