…that I, for one, am thrilled and delighted that Kazuo Ishiguro has been named this year’s Nobel Prize for Literature recipient.
The Nobel Prize in Literature 2017 was awarded to Kazuo Ishiguro “who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”.
I loved and adored The Buried Giant
in 2015 and The Remains of the Day
is one of my favourite reads from 15 years ago.
Never Let Me Know was one that I felt rather more ambivalent about but I have high hopes for Nocturnes, An Artist of the Floating World and The Unconsoled on my TBR pile.
