"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness."

Just finished Haruki's new novel "1Q84" (in Korean). It is about a woman and a man who slipped into the year of 1Q84 from the year of 1984. Lots of metaphors and imagination. There is a rumour about the sequel. I would love to read it.
As always, Haruki included lots of songs in his work. This is one of the songs.
If you are reading this book (once it has translated into English), I suggest you to go to this site and enjoy the music while reading.
