Having discovered pre-superstar Haruki Murakami more than two decades ago, Mette Holm had no idea how the Japanese author’s imagined worlds would steadily shape and transform her own. Since then she has spent thousands of hours translating Murakami’s surrealist tales to Danish readers—stories that continuously spellbind millions of devoted readers across the world. As Mette struggles to find the perfect sentences to articulate Murakami’s solitary, daydreaming characters, the boundary between reality and fiction begins to blur.
