Book
"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"--
A painter retreats into a solitary house in the Japanese mountains to rethink his life after his wife deserts him. Another painter, Amada, used to live in the lonely house and hid the mysterious painting "Killing Commendatore" in the attic. Now the narrator must confront a mysterious ringing bell, a physical manifestation of an Idea, a precocious teenage girl, a Nazi assassination attempt during World War II in Vienna, and an underworld haunted by Double Metaphors-- while searching for an understanding of the nature of art. -- adapted from jacket
