Details The Thief brings to mind Highsmith, Mishima and Doestoevsky... [it is] a chilling philosophical thriller leaving readers in doubt without making them feel in any way cheated. —The Wall Street Journal

In celebration of Fuminori Nakamura's nomination for the 2013 LA Times Book Prize for his existential thriller The Thief, Japan Society hosts a special interactive Author Luncheon during which the audience can participate in a dialogue with the author. Nakamura will be interviewed by Allison Markin Powell, translator of The Briefcase by Hiromi Kawakami, which was shortlisted for the 2012 Man Asian Literary Prize. In 2002, Nakamura won the prestigious Noma Literary Prize for New Writers for his first novel, A Gun, and in 2005 he was awarded the Akutagawa Prize for The Boy in the Earth. The Thief, his first novel to be published in English, won the 2010 Oe Prize, Japan's most important literary award.

The first 50 attendees to arrive at this event will receive a free advance copy of Evil and the Mask, Nakamura's second novel to be published in English, which will be released in June 2013.
