The Millions has this exclusive today: the first lines of Haruki Murakami’s highly anticipated new novel 1Q84. The novel sold over 100,000 copies its first week on sale in Japan back in 2009 (it’s been a long wait for readers here in the States.)
Artist Chip Kidd discussed designing the book cover for 1Q84 back in March.
The book goes on sale here October 25. You can preorder your copy through our website now.
