In Killing Commendatore, a thirty-something portrait painter in Tokyo is abandoned by his wife and holed up in the mountain home of a famous artist, Tomohiko Amada. When he discovers a strange 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 precocious thirteen-year-old girl, a Nazi assassination attempt during World War II 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.
