Kazuo Ishiguro, Paperback Book

Kazuo Ishiguro Paperback

Part of the Contemporary World Writers series


How Japanese is Ishiguro?What role does memory and unreliability play in his narratives?Why was The Unconsoled (1995) perceived to be such a radical break from the earlier novels?.

The first complete study to consider all of Ishiguro's work from A pale view of the hills (1982) to When we were Orphans (2000), including his short stories and television plays.

Explores the centrality of dignity and displacement in Ishiguro's vision, and teases out the connotations of home and homelessness in his fictions.

Invaluable for students at all levels, especially as The Remains of the Day by Ishiguro is a set text at GCSE and A Level. -- .
