Pet Sounds in Japan

It's a real honour when one of the world's great writers translates one of our humble little books into his/her own language - so I'm thrilled to announce the Japanese publication of Jim Fusilli's book on Pet Sounds, translated by Haruki Murakami.

I can't let this go uncommented any longer: Murakami is indeed one of the greatest living writers, and I think it's fascinating and wonderful that he has translated Jim Fusilli's book. I am curious about how well it translates, given reports that the English translation of Murakami's novels have often been truncated or have lost something. And I find it interesting that Murakami, with his obvious love of fairly sophisticated American jazz, chose to translate a book about one of the most sophisticated rock albums in history. Makes a guy wish he could could read Japanese.
