Basis for my sitcom, "Word Up"

Someday Haruki Murakami's going to write a book about what it's like to be perpetually in the running for the Nobel Prize for Literature and never get it. Also, cats and a mysterious woman. Naturally Philip Roth and Cormac McCarthy would be his next-door neighbors and Gabriel Garcia Marquez would be a local gangster who swaggers past without ever actually doing anything. Personally, I'm rooting for Italian author Dacia Maraini, because it's good to take a side.
