KAZUO ISHIGURO “is a master storyteller, in a class of his own making,” declares The Independent, and The New York Times calls him “an original and remarkable genius.” Born in Japan and raised in England, Ishiguro is one of the most celebrated writers of our time. He has been nominated for the Man Booker Prize four times and won it in 1989 for his international bestseller The Remains of the Day, whichNewsweek praised as “brilliant and quietly devastating” and The New York Review of Books described as “a virtuoso performance ... put on with dazzling daring and aplomb.” The author of six novels, his other major works include The Artist of the Floating World and Never Let Me Go. Both The Remains of the Day andNever Let Me Go were made into feature films. Ishiguro has received an OBE award and the prestigious Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. In 2005,Time magazine included Never Let Me Go on its list of 100 greatest English language novels since the magazine’s inception in 1923, and in 2008 The Times named Ishiguro in its list of the 50 greatest British writers since 1948. He will read from his highly anticipated new novel The Buried Giant, coming out in March 2015.
