Praise for Soseki:

'THE MINER may be a product of its time and place, but so is TO THE LIGHTHOUSE, so is A MAN WITHOUT QUALITIES, and books about thought - or mining for the nature of thought - are a valuable addition to any healthy reading diet. Warmly recommended for the curious reader.' David Mitchell

'It makes me very happy to know that even now I can read this novel written over a hundred years ago as if it were a contemporary account and be deeply affected by it. It cannot and should not be overlooked. It is one of my favourites.' from the introduction by Haruki Murakami

Political scientist Kang Sang-jung, principal of Seigakuin University, said, "Soseki predicted the problems we are facing today. He had a long-term view of civilization. His popularity will become more global in the future."

Praise for Murakami:

In April 2015, Murakami was named one of the TIME 100's most influential people.

"Readers wait for [Murakami's] work the way past generations lined up at record stores for new albums by the Beatles or Bob Dylan." --Patti Smith, The New York Times Book Review

Praise for Rubin:

'Translators generally don't garner much attention, but Jay Rubin has distinguished himself' Seattle Times
