Book Party: Murakami’s Killing Commendatore
October 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmRM15
Haruki Murakami’s hotly anticipated new novel, Killing Commendatore, is a stunning work of imagination, a tour de force of love, loneliness, war and art, as well as a loving homage to The Great Gatsby. The epic novel unfolds with a 30-something portrait painter in Tokyo who 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 13-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.
