Fans demand quick translation

According to Japan Daily Press:

"Early reviews for the new novel, his first in three years, seem very positive, with some readers saying that they were able to finish the book in just hours. The 370 page book tells the story of a young man who is trying to deal with his painful past through the help of a new romance. Sounds simple enough, but as with any Murakami novel, nothing is ever that simple or ordinary. His English-speaking readers however have to wait for a few more months before the book can be translated. There have actually been a few “Twitter campaigns” to pressure his US publisher into coming up with an English translation sooner than later."
