What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami [Knopf, $20]

Murakami's fans may be disappointed that the famously reticent novelist doesn't reveal more personal details in this slim memoir about preparing for the 2005 New York City Marathon, but you can't fault him for a misleading title. All's not lost, however, as Murakami's hypnotic, deadpan tone (which can find absurdity in even the most mundane detail) is present in full force, and this may be as close to an autobiography as we'll get.
