February 27, 2014

Following a recent Malay deal Haruki Marukami’s work is now available in 50 languages worldwide.

His latest novel, Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, was first published in Japan in April 2013. It has since been published in various languages including Spanish, Catalan, German, Dutch, Hungarian, Serbian and Romanian, topping international bestseller lists. It has reportedly sold over a million copies in Japan since publication.

UK publication is due in August 2014, with French publication to follow in September.

Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage marks a return to the lyrical realism not seen since his 1987 novel Norwegian Wood, but set against the social realities of contemporary Japan.
