Description

On a night-time walk along a Tokyo riverbank, a young man named Nishikawa stumbles on a dead body, besides which is lying a gun. From the moment Nishikawa makes the decision to take the gun, the world around him blurs. But Nishikawa's life becomes unexpectedly complicated: he finds himself romantically involved with two women, while his estranged biological father lies dying in a hospital. Through it all, he can't stop thinking about the gun - and the four bullets preloaded in its chamber.

Professional reviews

"The award-winning debut novel by Japanese noir master Fuminori Nakamura, translated into English for the first time. "The Gun is essentially a study of a nervous breakdown, amplified by the destructive power of a weapon that should never have wound up in its bearers shaky hands." LOS ANGELES REVIEW OF BOOKS"
