A Simple Tale

The Buried Giant

by Kazuo Ishiguro

Knopf Canada

All too rarely a novel comes along that leaves you at a loss for words; that leaves you, once the last page has been turned, staring into space.

Kazuo Ishiguro already has a reputation as a writer of exceptional qualities. His novels are models of elegant simplicity. He takes matters of great import, and delicately and assuredly brings them into the realm of the personal. He is the consummate artist of the light touch.

This is his crowning achievement.
