Random House Australia has announced the release date of Haruki Murakami’s latest book Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki And His Years Of Pilgrimage, along with a beautiful cover reveal! We’ll let them tell you more about it…
Readers around the world have been eagerly anticipating Murakami’s next book since the English-language publication of his bestselling epic, 1Q84, in 2011. Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki And His Years Of Pilgrimage was published to great acclaim in Japan in April 2013, selling one million copies in the first week. Newly released in Germany, Spain and Holland, it has topped the bestsellers lists in all three countries.
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki And His Years Of Pilgrimage will be available in hardback and ebook on 12th August 2014, translated into English from the Japanese by Philip Gabriel.
‘Stage one of the cover reveals an elegant abstract design, representing the five main characters and close childhood friends Mr. Red, Mr Blue, Miss White, Miss Black and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki. Tsukuru means to make or build, and this is an integral part of the second stage of our cover to be revealed at a later date.’
