"Originally published in Japan as KISHIDANCHO-GOROSHI DAI-ICHI-BU ARAWARERU IDEA HEN and KISHIDANCHO-GOROSHI DAI-NI-BU UTSUROU METAFUA HEN by SHINCHOSHA Publishing Co., Ltd., Tokyo in 2017" -- Verso title page.
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.
A single volume version of two books translated from the Japanese.
