“Not that she suffered from writer’s block. Far from it—she wrote endlessly, everything that came into her head. The problem was, she wrote too much….

“The novels—of fragments of novels, really—that Sumire wrote weren’t as terrible as she thought. True, at times her style resembled a patchwork quilt sewn by a group of stubborn old ladies, each with her own tastes and complaints, working in grim silence. Add to this Sumire’s sometimes manic-depressive personality, and things occasionally got out of control.”

Sputnik Sweetheart, Haruki Murakami
