It was announced today that Haruki Murakami will publish a new short story collection almost exactly a year after Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki hit the bookstores. The collection, titled Onna no inai otokotachi ("Men Without Women"? "Womenless Men"?  The site gives the title as the somewhat awkward "Men Who Do Not Have Girlfriends"), consists of five or six (depending on the source) stories, all but one of which have previously been published.

Here is the list of six stories, based on information provided in the article:

(For readers who don't read Japanese, the stories are: 1) the previously unpublished title story, 2) "Drive My Car," 3)"Yesterday," 4) "Independent Organ" [?], 5) "Kino," all of which have appeared in Bungei Shunju and 6) "Scheherezade," which appeared in Monkey.

Here is a link to the article article in English (which mentions only five stories). 

The book can already be ordered on and is already listed as a "Number 1 bestseller"!
