Fans queue for new book by one of Japan's top authors

First published in News

A BOOKSHOP held the launch for a new book by one of Japan’s favourite authors. City Books in Hove hosted a special Haruki Murakami morning as it launched the English-language publication of his new book Colorless Tsukuru and His Years of Pilgrimage.

Colorless Tsukuru sold a million copies in its first week in Japan.

Paul Sweetman of City Books said: “A new Murakami book is always a special event and his fans in Brighton and Hove are getting excited about being able to get their hands on the limited first edition and read the brilliant opening sentence.

“City Books opened early for the occasion and a fun takeaway Japanese breakfast came with each book.”

They celebrated by decking the shop out with Japanese themed displays, balloons, banners and gave away goody bags.

Slightly misleading story there. Not exactly scores of people, actually looks like they're about to open, so people just waiting. I think the queue formed when someone said 'free breakfast'.

The words 'hardly any' are absent from the start of the headline.
