The award-winning debut novel by Japanese noir master Fuminori Nakamura, translated into English for the first time.
From the moment university student Nishikawa spots the gun next to the dead man he's stumbled across on a nighttime walk, the world around him blurs. The gun - loaded with four bullets - brings an intoxicating sense of excitement to his life. But soon merely possessing the gun is not enough. He must shoot it.
Fuminori Nakamura's presence in the US has been steadily increasing since Soho's first publication of The Thief. A young, exciting Japanese author who has won Japan's prestigious Oe Prize (The Thief), Akutagawa Prize (The Boy in the Earth), and Shincho Literary Prize (A Gun).
