We haven’t posted this until now. It’s not that we didn’t notice it. Actually I saw the news in the first instance. I’m not surprised, although this prize, always evokes a lot of discussion.
Kazuo Ishiguro is one of my favourites. Born in Japan, he moved to UK when he was five, Ishiguro’s writing has some very English subtlety and excellency. He writes in various areas and you just can’t categorise him into any genre. If his very famous work ‘The remains of the day’, the Man Booker winning title, expressed the regret and compassion for past human conditions, then his ‘Never let me go’ explores the possibility of lost humanity in the future.
