    Murakami's newest novel will be released in Japan in February. Currently scant details about it exist aside from what Murakami has stated in interviews. It's supposed to be longer than Kafka On the Shore but shorter than 1Q84. It will be written in first person point of view as opposed to the third person point of view that he's used in every novel since After Dark.

    2084: The End of World by Boualem Sansal will be out next year. It sounds like an intriguing book.

    Finally! I actually thought they wouldn't translate it, but I'm happy because I won't have to learn French in order to read it. :P

    Read it back in October. It is a very solid book with a trigger very similar to Houllebecq's Soumission. I think I made a short review at the Recently Finished Books thread if you're interested.

    The great big Millions book preview for for the first half of 2017 has been released. I don't know why I've read it, when I haven't even read any of the books that I wanted to read and were released in 2016, or 2015 for that matter (well, maybe I read one published in that year?). There are just too many books in the world and not enough time. Anyways, take a gander and share which ones you think look enticing. Here are the ones which strike my fancy - a surprisingly small number, though I'm not in the market for buying a bunch of new books. There are a lot more that look interesting though. A ton of stuff coming out by people of colour!

    Human Acts - Han Kang
    The Schooldays of Jesus - JM Coetzee

    A number of exciting new (or newly translated) publications: Remains of Life (part-novel, part-not-fiction) by the Taiwanese author Wu He; The Exploded View (novel) by the South African Ivan Vladislavic; two novellas by Yan Lianke; Fresh Complaint (stories) by Jeffrey Eugenides; The Golden House (new novel) by Salman Rushdie; The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy; the collected poems of Michel Houellebecq; and The Book of Emma Reyes (which looks amazing).

    I'm intrigued with Arundhati Roy's long overdue second novel. Will it be as good as the first?

    Wow, what a goldmine, thanks Dan!!

    Really excited about the new LK, and the cover for Henry Green's Concluding (which I've never read) is superb! I like how his style is described as a "gathering web of insinuations," that's so precise.
