Knopf will publish these two novellas in one volume in the fall 2015. The works will feature a new English translation by Ted Goosen.

Knopf recently released Murakami’s latest novel Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage last month and will publish his upcoming novella The Strange Library in December.
