Some Comments from the Taiwanese Translator
MIng Chu Lai, the Taiwanese translator of Tsukuru Tazaki writes:
Here, in Taiwan, the new book’s cover looks like the Japanese version. The Chinese translation - Taiwan (traditional characters) version - of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, went on sale on October 1st. The book became the top seller from the first week.
On the platform of the subway station near SOGO department store, the big poster advertising the new book surprised passengers. Since railroad stations play an important role in this novel, it’s also a good place to show the news of the book release.
