My wife translated this small article. New Murakami Novelbeing released this April in Japan!

***

The novelist Murakami Haruki will publish a new long novel in April for
the first time in three years, announced by a major publisher, Bungei
Shunju.

On February 16th, Bungei Shunju put the announcement titled “About the
new work of Mr. Murakami Haruki” on its official site. For now,
further information other than the new work is previously unpublished
has not been opened yet. The details will be announced sequentially.

It will be the first new novel for Murakami since “1Q84 BOOK3” which
was published in 2010. Murakami has published collections of short
stories from Bungei Shunju but his long novels used to be published
from Kodan-sha and Shincho-sha. It will be the first time for him to
publish his long novel from Bungei Shunju.

Murakami is a world-known novelist who has been considered the most
likely recipient of Novel Prize in Literature. Together with his debut
novel, “Hear the Wind Sing” being adopted as a movie starring
Kobayashi Kaoru, his representative work “Norwegian Wood” attracted
people in 2010 by being made into a movie starring Matsuyama Kenichi
by Director Trần Anh Hùng. (Fukuda Urara)

I finished my cigarette and ground it out with my shoe, only to find another butt right next to my foot. I
picked it up. A flattened Seven Stars. Not wet, so it had been from after the rains. Which meant either
yesterday or today.

I tried to recall what brand of cigarette the Rat smoked. But I couldn't remember if he even smoked.
I gave up and tossed the cigarette butt into the stream. The current whisked it off downstream in an instant.
