Serbian and Italian Covers, Hebrew, Lithuanian, Slovak and Slovene Translation Rights
A Serbian and Italian covers of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki appeared on the website of Curtis Brown Agency, the agent representing Murakami in Europe. The Serbian publisher is Geopoetika and the book will released in December in Nataša Tomić's translation (one of the very few announcements so far that include translator's name!). The Italian translation (which for some reason used the reading "Tasaki," instead of "Tazaki," in the title) will be translated by Antonietta Pastore and published by Einaudi Editore in March 2014 according to "well-informed sources" (http://www.bibliotecagiapponese.it/2013/11/27/murakami-e-lincolore-tsukuru-tasaki-e-il-suo-anno-di-pellegrinaggio/).
Also, Hebrew (Kinneret), Slovak (Slovart Spol), Lithuanian (Baltos Lankos) and Slovene (Mladinska Knjiga) have joined the list of languages and publishers who are foreign translation rights holders.
