This is an extraordinary new novel from the author of “Never Let Me Go” and the Booker Prize-winning “The Remains of the Day.
“You’ve long set your heart against it, Axl, I know. But it’s time now to think on it anew. There’s a journey we must go on, and no more delay . . .”
“The Buried Giant” begins as a couple set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen in years. Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in nearly a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge, and war.
“Kazuo Ishiguro is an original and remarkable genius”. (The New York Times).
“A master craftsman”. (Margaret Atwood, Slate).
“The best and most original writer of his generation”. (Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday).
