'Gatsby' and Murakami

Metaphorically speaking, I had placed Gatsby securely on my kamidana, the high shelf that serves as a household shrine to the Shinto gods, and then lived my life glancing up at it from time to time.
Great text [fiction? non-fiction?] from Murakami about how to translate properly Fitzgerald's "The great Gatsby" into English.

It remembered me another writer writing about translation: Borges' "Pierre Ménard, autor del Quijote" [English translation, here].
