About the Book

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


By the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go

Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give. But then as he traverses a landscape by turns eerie and comical - and always strangely malleable, as a dream might be - he comes steadily to realise he is facing the most crucial performance of his life.


Ishiguro's extraordinary and original study of a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control was met on publication by consternation, vilification - and the highest praise.
