Murakami’s new novel will be titled Killing Commendatore, and it will come out November 2018. Murakami fans are excited about this new volume, which seems to follow a similar style to his previous books. The novel is divided into two parts, Part 1: The Idea Made Visible and Part 2: The Shifting Metaphor.The novel’s plot will be centred around art and its creation. The story of the novel will be about a painter who faces being separated from his spouse. He then starts living at a famous artist’s residence where he finds an enigmatic painting that has the same title as the novel. The painting portrays a scene from Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni, showing the killing of Donna Anna’s father (Il Commendatore) by Don Giovanni, but the painting is set in 7th-century Japan. This new novel is likened to Murakami’s magical realist masterpiece, Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.
