Just a reminder to play Haruki Murakami Bingo today - “Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage” is out in the US! 

The bingo board photos and handmade pieces are courtesy of Los Angeles-based painter (and Murakami/Incidental Comics reader) Hunter Nesbitt. Thanks Hunter!

2014 marks the 50th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s beloved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
“You couldn’t accuse Willie Wonka of being reasonable: in a world of children who’ve grown up too fast, he’s an adult who has somehow managed to hang on to his childishness. He’s the opposite of what you’ve been taught to expect from a mentor: where other writer supply their child heroes with grown-ups who teach them how to become grown-ups themselves, Willia Wonka is there to remind Charlie not to grow up too far or too fast.”
—Lev Grossman, from the introduction to our Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features cover art by award-winning cartoonist Ivan Brunetti.

Has visto,
verdaderamente has visto
la nieve, los astros, los pasos afelpados de la brisa…
Has tocado,
de verdad has tocado
el plato, el pan, la cara de esa mujer que tanto amás…
Has vivido
como un golpe en la frente,
el instante, el jadeo, la caída, la fuga…
Has sabido
con cada poro de la piel, sabido
que tus ojos, tus manos, tu sexo, tu blando corazón,
había que tirarlos
había que llorarlos
había que inventarlos otra vez.
Julio Cortázar, “Para leer en forma interrogativa” (via bookshavepores)
