The Taiwanese Translation of Tsukuru Tazaki Coming Out Tomorrow

The first Chinese translation of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki is to appear in Taiwan on October 1, 2013.

The translator is Lai Ming-zhu(頼明珠) who has rendered into Chinese practically everything Haruki Murakami has ever written, including his essays (c.f.頼明珠).  We are happy to see that her name is printed on the cover.

The book can be pre-ordered until today at a discount price. Here are some links:

It seems that the book went on sale a few days earlier in Hong Kong (and has already sold a million copies!), which has some Taiwanese readers irate.
