Kazuo Ishiguro! 

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?

Name’s Patricia, but you can call me Pati. Or Pat. As you like it. la_bambola, because of Patty Pravo. “Cerca trova”. Because I constantly seek. Purpose, happiness, motivation. The lost joy of life. And I find. The sheer excitement of starting a new book, intoxication with words. The beauty of art in its various forms. The simple pleasure of catching those fleeting moments. The fulfillment in making them meaningful. Who am I? A simple, yet no ordinary girl. Fighting with her demons, trying to find her place in the world. Currently working in an IT company. Passionate about books, languages, travels, sometimes drawing portraits and never saying no to good movies or engrossing tv shows (even if I’m very selective, it’s just that I do value my time). Fascinated by the mesmerizing, exotic land of India, its culture, colours, literature, language and cinematography.
