New Murakami Means a New Round of Murakami Bingo

This week saw the release of a new Haruki Murakami novel titled Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. The novel is about “the remarkable story of Tsukuru Tazaki, a young man haunted by a great loss; of dreams and nightmares that have unintended consequences for the world around us; and of a journey into the past that is necessary to mend the present. It is a story of love, friendship, and heartbreak for the ages.”

The novel sounds a bit like a collection of Murakami cliches, which means it’s time to bust out your Murakami Bingo board (created by Grant Snider and available to purchase in his poster shop) and mark off as you read.
