Jerusalem prize

Ian McEwan won the Jerusalem Prize! For 2009 the winner was Haruki Murakami. The prize is awarded for the novelist who best expresses “freedom of the individual in society.”

  1. I’ve never read McEwan, so I have ordered one of his books from the library to rectify matters.

  2. I want to read something by Haruki Murakami.

  3. So many books worthy of reading and despite my speed, and despite the hours I gladly give to books, I will never be able to make any kind of decent in-road into the pile of “I wish…”
