Haruki Murakami’s latest novel Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage has been a phenomenal success in Japan, with nine print runs and over one million copies now in print, less than a month after its release.

Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage was published in Japanese on 12th April 2013 and is Murakami’s first work in three years after the release of Book 3, the concluding part of his ambitious 1Q84 trilogy. Before its publication, few details were released about the novel. There were record numbers of pre-orders for the book and book stores in Japan had midnight launch parties with fans lining up by the hundreds eager to find out more.
