Kazuo Ishiguro, author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day, comes to the US with an extraordinary new novel awaited for over ten years.|
"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.
Ishiguro's seven previous books have won him wide renown and numerous honors. His work has been translated into more than forty languages. Both The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go have more than 1,000,000 copies in print across platforms, and both were adapted into highly acclaimed films. Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear and meet a unique, sublimely talented master writer.
Joining Ishiguro in conversation this evening is Michael David Lukas, former Fulbright Scholar and National Endowment for the Arts fellow, author of the novel The Oracle of Stamboul. Translated into more than twelve languages, it was a finalist for the California Book Award, the NCIBA Book of the Year award, and the Harold U. Ribalow Prize
