New Murakami novel in 2014

The English translation of Haruki Murakami‘s latest novel  Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and the Year of His Pilgrimage is likely to be finished by the end of 2013, according to a Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group source.

So if you're a Murakmai fan like me and  read Murakami only in English, expect to get it sometime in 2014

A reviewer says of the novel, "I felt that the Great East Japan Earthquake loomed in the background of the novel. I had the impression that Murakami faced the disaster straightforwardly. The book has strong messages and many encouraging words."

The novel has sold one million copies each week in Japan since its publication  in April this year.
