The Nippon Club will hold a special lecture by Jay Rubin who is well known as the translator of Haruki Murakami’s novels. The talk will discuss Mr. Rubin’s twenty-five years translating and studying the works of Murakami and take note of Murakami influences in his recent novel, The Sun Gods (published by Chin Music Press in May 2015).
