Murakami’s latest novel broke Japan’s internet pre-order records and Tokyo book shops opened at midnight to lines of eager fans. In this very special event, we present the first look at the highly-anticipated Killing Commendatore two days before its UK release with its translator Ted Goossen, a long-term reader and collaborator of Murakami’s, plus writer friends and fans David Mitchell, David Peace and Evie Wyld and readings from a special guest. Chaired by Georgina Godwin.

Line-up update: we’re delighted to announce that actor Julian Rhind-Tutt will be performing extracts from the novel.
