Strange Library Perhaps Too Strange for Libraries

November 12, 2014

This title is getting solid reviews for inventiveness and Murakami has a devoted following, but after seeing an advanced copy today, I’ve decided to cancel our print order for now. The cover wraps vertically around the book and is meant to be unraveled and looked at in a way that would make it extremely difficult to circulate effectively.  Fortunately no one had placed a hold on it yet (it comes out in the middle of December).  We will get a few copies of the audiobook which I assume will not have any similar issues.  Apologies to fans.

[Update: there seems to be some energy around this. I’m checking into how other libraries are handling and we are going to get the 3M ebook as well, at least]

Summary : A lonely bThe strange libraryoy, a mysterious girl, and a tormented sheep man plot their escape from a nightmarish library.
