Description

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

Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give . . .

On first publication in 1995, The Unconsoled was met in some quarters with bewilderment and vilification, in others with the highest praise. One commentator asked, ‘Has Ishiguro gone for greatness or has he gone mad?’ Over the years, this uniquely strange and extraordinary novel about a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control has come to be seen by many as being the key work and a turning point in his career.

‘A masterpiece. It is above all a book devoted to the human heart.’ Rachel Cusk, The Times

‘The most original and remarkable book he has so far produced.’ New York Times Book Review

‘One of the strangest books in memory.’ TLS

‘I’ve never read a book like it. I think it is a masterpiece.’ John Carey, The Late Show
