Just days ago, we wrote about the world wide stardom of Author Haruki Murakami. The BBC writes their own gushing piece about the author. One book store rep mentions Harry Potter in the same sentence as IQ84 in terms of sales. His book is set to come out next week, and it’s set to be a best seller at 1600 pages. There’s a lot of Murakami factoids and this one should wet your appetite to actually read this behemoth of a novel.
