Haruki Murakami's first multivolume novel in seven years - perplexingly titled Killing Commendatore in English (騎士団長殺し) - is released in Japan on February 24th, and Kinokuniya bookstore in Shinjuku is already starting their countdown: from tomorrow (February 4th), those who pre-order the book can pick up tickets for the midnight launch on the 23rd (presumably, as this is after the last train, to be followed by reading it in the store until dawn...). Details on Kinokuniya's website.
