Haruki Murakami Excerpts ’1Q84′ in New Yorker

This week The New Yorker ran an excerpt from Haruki Murakami‘s upcoming novel, 1Q84.

Check it out: “Most people think of Sunday as a day of rest. Throughout his childhood, however, Tengo had never once viewed Sunday as a day to enjoy. For him, Sunday was like a misshapen moon that showed only its dark side. When the weekend came, his whole body began to feel sluggish and achy, and his appetite would disappear.”

If you want some mood music for “Town of Cats,” check out our growing Murakami playlist on Spotify. It includes many songs from the novel, constantly updated as this GalleyCat editor works his way through a review copy of the novel.
