Haruki Murakami’s New Book More Than 1,000 Pages

hmimage.jpgThe literary bloggers at The Millions report that the Japanese version of Haruki Murakami‘s new novel will be a whopping 1,055 pages and published in two volumes.

As the release date for the Japanese novelist’s new book nears in Japan, fans around the globe have combed the Internet for clues about “1Q84.” The blog notes that Japanese translations usually run up to 1.5 to 2 times longer than the source material.

Here’s more from the post: “While size isn’t everything, it seem to be working in the book’s favor; published in two volumes, it currently occupies the top two spots on Amazon Japan’s book rankings…The book comes out this Friday in Japan. Check in next week for a roundup of reviews and commentary.”
