Description

The epic new novel from the internationally acclaimed and best-selling author of 1Q84 In Killing Commendatore, a thirty-something portrait painter in Tokyo is abandoned by his wife and finds himself holed up in the mountain home of a famous artist, Tomohiko Amada. When he discovers a previously unseen painting in the attic, he unintentionally opens a circle of mysterious circumstances. To close it, he must complete a journey that involves a mysterious ringing bell, a two-foot-high physical manifestation of an Idea, a dapper businessman who lives across the valley, a precocious thirteen-year-old girl, a Nazi assassination attempt during World War II in Vienna, a pit in the woods behind the artist's home, and an underworld haunted by Double Metaphors. A tour de force of love and loneliness, war and art—as well as a loving homage to The Great Gatsby—Killing Commendatore is a stunning work of imagination from one of our greatest writers.

Professional reviews

"A struggling portrait artist who is trying to change his career direction is the focus of this new audiobook from acclaimed Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. Narrator Kirby Heyborne employees a measured tone and pace as the story weaves a fantastic tale featuring an imaginary character and a nod to the theme of capitalism explored in THE GREAT GATSBY. Heyborne handles the more fantastic incidents with the authority and assuredness needed for the listener to accept the imaginary twists and turns. Expect the unexpected from the author of IQ84 and KAFKA ON THE SHORE in this extraordinary work of scope and imagination. R.O. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
