Killing commendatore

Murakami, Haruki
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.
