Editorial Reviews

Review

“Exhilarating.” —The Washington Post

“Some novelists hold a mirror up to the world and some, like Haruki Murakami, use the mirror as a portal to a universe hidden beyond it.” —The Wall Street Journal

“[Murakami] is as masterful as ever.” —Houston Chronicle
 
“A spellbinding parable of art, history, and human loneliness.” —O, The Oprah Magazine
 
“The product of a singular imagination.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Expansive and intricate.” —The New York Times
 
“Beguiling. . . . Murakami is brilliant.” —The Guardian

“Dazzling. . . . [Murakami] reveals how an artist sees the world.” —Entertainment Weekly
 
“[A] sprawling, uncanny epic. . . . A time-traveling tale of loss, longing, and the creation of art—with an ample dash of Murakami’s trademark deadpan humor.” —Vanity Fair
 
“A perfect balance of tradition and individual talent. . . . Murakami dancing along ‘the inky blackness of the Path of Metaphor’ is like Fred Astaire dancing across a floor, then up the walls and onto the ceiling.” —The Spectator
 
“A surreal, world-altering epic punctuated by art, literature and history.” —Time
 
“[Murakami] once more explicates the seemingly impossible with such thorough, exacting conviction to make believers of us all.” —The Christian Science Monitor
 
“No other author mixes domestic, fantastic and esoteric elements into such weirdly bewitching shades. . . . Just as [Murakami] straddles barriers dividing high art from mass entertainment, so he suspends borders between east and west.” —Financial Times
 
“[Killing Commendatore] marks the return of a master.” —Esquire
 
“The complex landscape that Murakami assembles in Killing Commendatore is a word portrait of the artist’s inner life.” —The Times Literary Supplement
 
“Fascinating. . . . Drawing on Buddhist spiritualism, metaphysics and magical realism—not to mention Lewis Carroll—Killing Commendatore finds its narrator enmeshed in a singular philosophic adventure.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
 
“Enthralling.” —Forward
 
“Murakami beautifully captures the evanescence of inspiration.” —Vulture
 
“Its size, beauty, and concerns with lust and war bring us back to the vividness and scale of [Murakami’s] 1997 epic, The Wind-up Bird Chronicle.’’ —The Boston Globe
 
“Lovely and strange.” —Bustle
 
“Wild, thrilling. . . . Murakami is a master storyteller and he knows how to keep us hooked. . . . What makes his voice so distinctive, and so captivating, is the mix of precise observation, clarity and deadpan humour.” —The Sunday Times (London)
