All God's Children Can Dance

it's one of the six short stories in Murakami's "After the Quake".

it started with a young curious man following a doctor whom he thought to be his father. Born from a deeply rooted Christian mother, he kept on thinking that he's the son of God for all these years until his innards told him otherwise. For me, the author covers or rather scrutinize the radical Christian faith wherein dogmatic beliefs are sponged with heavenly conviction, loopholes and flaws---an absolute parallelism of what is divine and what it is to be human. Yet Murakami was able to support both clashes so strong that each side is so convincing. The story is so fluid that i can consider it as a reminiscent of Virginia Woolf's sketches.

this short story was even adapted into a film by US. Director Robert Logevall.

yet another Murakami masterpiece..
