Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami

When a thirty-something portrait painter is abandoned by his wife, he secludes himself in the mountain home of a world-famous artist. One day, the young painter hears a noise from the attic, and upon investigation, he discovers a previously unseen painting. By unearthing this hidden work of art, he unintentionally opens a circle of mysterious circumstances; and to close it, he must undertake a perilous journey into a netherworld that only Murakami could conjure. "The complex landscape that Murakami assembles in Killing Commendatore is a word portrait of the artist's inner life."—The Times Literary Supplement
