New Paris Review

The new Paris Review issue is now available for order. Highlights include an interview with Haruki Murakami.

INTERVIEWER
And yet the desire to find out who killed the chauffeur is part of what makes The Big Sleep a page-turner.
MURAKAMI
I myself, as I’m writing, don’t know who did it. The readers and I are on the same ground. When I start to write a story, I don’t know the conclusion at all and I don’t know what’s going to happen next. If there is a murder case as the first thing, I don’t know who the killer is. I write the book because I would like to find out. If I know who the killer is, there’s no purpose to writing the story.
