Haruki Murakami is launching an advice column

Haruki Murakami is best known for his novels and short stories, but on Tuesday, his publisher announced he'll be tackling another written medium: the advice column.

In the column "Mr. Murakami's Place," the author will answer "questions of any kind" from his fans across the world, responding in a variety of languages. The Guardian adds that Murakami will also answer questions about his personal interests, including cats and baseball. (We're betting jazz music and pasta will make an appearance at some point, too.)
