Murakami releases his new book at midnight in Tokyo

Literary rock-star, Haruki Murakami, released his new book hours ago in a a midnight opening in Tokyo. Only printed in Japanese, the title translates roughly to “Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and the Year of his Pilgrimage”. For the legions of Murakami devotees who failed to bone up on our Japanese prior to this release, we eagerly await translations in the near-distant future. Since this book falls about 700 pages short of his last release, Pulitizer Prize nominated, 1Q84, hopefully we won’t have to wait 2 years to get it outside of Japan. [image via dawn.com]
