Polish Translation Goes on Sale Today at 5pm
As announced before, the Polish translation of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, titled Bezbarwny Tsukuru Tazaki i lata jego pielgrzymstwa, officially goes on sale today at 5 pm. Readers will be able to buy the book from vending machines located at train stations in three major cities, which is meant to reflect Tsukuru's passion for trains and train stations.
In spite of the marketing efforts to built up excitement in this way, I discovered on the the Polish Murakami Facebook page that some bookstores have already begun selling the novel.
