I have been getting some tweets from Japan over the past week. This can only mean that the Japanese translation of the book is now out there.
A big thanks to my translator and my Japanese publisher, Hakusuisha (@Hakusuisha on Twitter).
Here's the link to the book's page on Hakusuisha's website.
People are even tweeting photos of it on bookstore shelves.Looks like you get a free package of basil seeds with the book. Nice packaging touch.
