  • A publishing event: A major new, epic novel from the internationally
    acclaimed, best-selling author of Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of
    Pilgrimage and 1Q84.

         An unnamed thirtysomething portrait painter, abandoned by his wife, becomes
    caretaker of the home of an aging famous artist, Tomohiko Amada. When the
    younger man discovers an unknown painting in the attic, entitled Killing
    Commendatore--a painting that takes its cues from Mozart's opera Don
    Giovanni--he also discovers clues about Amada, his family, and their involvement
    in a violent and failed plot to kill a Nazi leader in Vienna. As the painter slowly
    learns the truth, he is equally consumed by the story of a wealthy and mysterious
    neighbor, Menshiki, in what is Murakami's homage to The Great Gatsby. The
    painter becomes obsessed with Menshiki's doomed love affair, the young girl who
    might be his child, and a stone-lined underground space in the nearby woods that
    becomes a portal into another world, a surreal place where the figures from  Killing
    Commendatore take form to guide our narrator on an epic journey. Ambitious and
    haunting, tactile and surreal, preoccupied with questions about trauma, art, and
    the creative process, Killing Commendatore moves between the known world and
    a complex underworld.
