Haruki Murakami has some thoughts about his country’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On his monthly radio show, the author of Norwegian Wood and First Person Singular responded to Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga’s recent comments about seeing an exit from the crisis.

“If he really saw an exit, his eyes must be extremely good for his age,” Murakami said, according to the Associated Press.

“I’m of the same age as Mr. Suga, but I don’t see any exit at all.”

Murakami has previously expressed disdain for politicians who communicate through bureaucratic messages instead of words that will connect with people, says the AP.
