BURIED GIANT


BURIED GIANT

KAZUO ISHIGURO    Book Number: 89604    Product format: Paperback

Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, this was the Japanese author's first novel in a decade, and it is about lost memories, love, revenge and war. By the Nobel prize-winning author of 'The Remains of the Day.' The Romans have long since departed and Britain is steadily declining into ruin, but at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. 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 some strange hazards, some of which are strange and other-worldly, but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal them to the dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another. Ishiguro is not afraid to tackle huge, personal themes, nor to use myths, history and the fantastic as the tools to do it. He has delivered a beautiful fable with a hard message at its core and this very readable novel is moving and strangely resonant, a work of great originality and even hypnotic beauty. 362pp, paperback.
