Kazuo Ishiguro Résumé

Kazuo Ishiguro Cynthia F. Wong

A new edition of the first full-length study of contemporary British writer Kazuo Ishiguro and his works, up to 2005. This book explores his uses of memory and its unreliability in narrative, his manipulations of desire and how humans reinterpret worlds from which they feel estranged. All of his works are eloquent expressions of people struggling with the silence of pain and the awkward stutters of confusion and loss. This book examines his subtle and ironic portrayals of people in emotional bereavement and it situates Ishiguro as an important international novelist by looking at his constructions of personal and political histories. Best known for the Booker Prize-winning and Merchant-Ivory film adaptation of The Remains of the Day, Ishiguro continues his formal experimentation in narrative voice with subsequent work and emphasises the necessary, yet futile, spirit that envelops many of his characters.
