haruki murakami - hard-boiled wonderland and the End of the World 10-6-13 “The elevator continued its impossibly slow ascent. Or at least I imagined it was ascent. There was no telling for sure: it was so slow that all sense of direction simply vanished. It could have been going down for all I knew, or maybe it wasn’t moving at all. But let’s assume it was going up. Merely a guess. Maybe I’d gone up twelve stories, then down three. Maybe I’d circled the glove. How would I know?”

‘Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World’ by Haruki Murakami [translated from the Japanese by Alfred Birnbaum]
