about

The first complete study of Ishiguro's work from A Pale View of the Hills to When We Were Orphans, this book explores the centrality of dignity and displacement in Ishiguro's vision, and teases out the connotations of home and homelessness in his fictions. Barry Lewis focuses on such key questions as: How Japanese is Ishiguro?; What role does memory and unreliability play in his narratives?; Why was The Unconsoled understood to be such a radical break from the earlier novels?
