By Haruki Murakami
Kan vi verkligen säga att världen existerar så som vi uppfattar den? Hur är världen egentligen skapad? Hur samverkar det som nu existerar med det förflutna? Och hur påverkar nuet framtiden? Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse.

As do I when roles are reversed, or so I have always assumed. This oneness of purpose, of action, of words, is essential to the Pact. For this reason I do not insist that I go back & delete those lines above, where I promise a revelation of my secret. ) However, no revelation of my secret may be made, & is not even to be considered again. I must hobble a while longer. I am ignoring the fact that Rupert Angier yet lives! I do indeed sometimes put him from my mind, wilfully drawing veils of forgetfulness across him & his deeds, but the wretch continues to draw breath.
By the evening of the first day, alone in my bedroom, I had mastered Three Card Monte, and was setting to work on the other techniques I had briefly seen. One day, his painting work completed, Noonan left the yard and went out of my life. I never saw him again. He left behind him an impressionable adolescent boy with a compulsion. I intended to rest at nothing until I had mastered the art that I now knew (from a book I urgently borrowed from the lending library) was called Legerdemain. Legerdemain, sleight of hand, prestidigitation, became the dominant interest of my life.
It is difficult to think back to that time, because the dispute between us has gone on so long, and has taken so many different forms. If I committed both wrong and right at the outset, Angier must accept the blame for keeping the feud alive. Many times, sick of the whole thing, I have tried to get on with my life and career, only to find that some new attack was being mounted against me. Angier would often find a way of sabotaging my magical equipment, so that a production I was attempting on stage went subtly wrong; one night the water I was turning into red wine remained water; another time the string of flags I pulled flamboyantly from an opera hat appeared as string alone; at another performance the lady assistant who was supposed to levitate remained unmovably and mortifyingly on her bed.
