Product description

Faced with a sudden divorce, our nameless protagonist, a well accomplished portrait painter, struggles to come to terms with his new identity and artistic freedom. A strange series of events, starting with a mysterious new neighbor, set in motion an adventure bringing us face to face with raw human emotion and the surreal. Murakami lulls readers into a world they won't want to leave and, as a first-time reader of his work, compels me to explore his other books.

- Recommended by Gavin O’Donnell, Dubray Grafton St.

The much-anticipated new novel from the internationally acclaimed, best-selling author of 1Q84 and Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, Killing Commendatore is an epic tour de force of love and loneliness, war and art - as well as a loving homage to The Great Gatsby - and a stunning work of imagination from one of our greatest writers.
