And the award goes to…
Congratulations to the very talented, Japanese-born English novelist, some of whose less known works I’m still yet to explore. I’ve read only “Never Let Me Go” and “The Remains of the Day” so far and both, although quite different each, left me content and hungry for more. Here you can listen to what the writer himself has to say in regards to this ‘magnificent honour’.
Do you like Ishiguro’s works? What do you find the most appealing about the world he creates? Which titles would you recommend to me? I’m open to discussion!
PS: And another year goes by with another famous Japanese writer being nominated and then left aside… Looks like Haruki Murakami has become the Di Caprio of the “Oscars” of literature 😉 But does it really matter?
