Description

*Kazuo Ishiguro’s new novel Klara and the Sun is now available*

The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin.

The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards – some strange and other-worldly – but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.

‘A beautiful fable with a hard message at its core . . . There won’t, I suspect, be a more important work of fiction published this year.’ John Sutherland, The Times

‘An exceptional novel . . . The Buried Giant does what important books do: it remains in the mind long after it has been read, refusing to leave.’ Neil Gaiman, New York Times Book Review

‘A beautiful, heartbreaking book about the duty to remember and the urge to forget.’ Alex Preston, Observer
