Title and Publication Date of the New Murakami Novel Released
Shinchosha, Murakami's Japanese publisher, announced today that the new Murakami novel will appear on February 24. The title will be 騎士団長殺し. I am not sure how to translate this title. The first word means "master/commander of a (con)fraternity of knights, a chivalric order." The second word means "killing." According to yahoo news and Mainichi.jp the English title will be Killing Commendatore. The first volume will be titled 顕れるイデア編 (Ideas That Appear), and the second 遷ろうメタファー編 (Metaphors That Move/Change).
