Author of the Month

Ishiguro’s novels — A Pale View of Hills (1982), An Artist of the Floating World (1986), The Remains of the Day (1989), The Unconsoled (1995), When We Were Orphans (2000), Never Let Me Go (2005) — are preoccupied by memories, their potential to digress and distort, to forget and to silence, and above all to haunt. The protagonists of his fiction seek to overcome loss (the personal loss of family members and lovers; losses resulting from war) by making sense of the past through acts of remembrance. In 1983, he was included in the seminal Granta best of young British writers list, alongside Martin Amis, Ian McEwan, Salman Rushdie, Julian Barnes, Graham Swift, Rose Tremain and Pat Barker. He went on to win the Whitbread Award and Man Booker Prize, and garner a dedicated readership around the world.

His new novel, The Buried Giant, begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards, some strange and other-worldly, but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them the dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.

Sometimes savage and always intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.
