NEWRAKAMI IS NEARLY NOWRAKAMI!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the opening lines of 1Q84 (courtesy of The Millions):

The taxi’s radio was tuned to a classical FM broadcast. Janáček’s Sinfonietta—probably not the ideal music to hear in a taxi caught in traffic. The middle-aged driver didn’t seem to be listening very closely, either. With his mouth clamped shut, he stared straight ahead at the endless line of cars stretching out on the elevated expressway, like a veteran fisherman standing in the bow of his boat, reading the ominous confluence of two currents. Aomame settled into the broad back seat, closed her eyes, and listened to the music.

And, because I like you, I’ll let you in on a little competition that Random House have running, where you can win a leather-bound edition of 1Q84. Obviously, I will be winning this, but I just thought I’d let you know. Good luck!*

*If you win, I get custody on the weekends.
