Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The magnificent new novel from Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro--author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day. An international literary event, it will be published simultaneously on March 2, 2021, by Knopf Canada, Faber & Faber in the UK and Alfred A. Knopf in the US.

Klara and the Sun, the first publication by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, is a thrilling feat of world-building, and a heartbreaking novel of tenderness and humanity. It gives us an unexpected glimpse into the modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

In 2017, Ishiguro was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. In its award citation, the Nobel committee described his books as "novels of great emotional force" and said that he has "uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."
Biographical NoteKAZUO ISHIGURO was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954 and moved to Britain at the age of five. His eight previous works of fiction have earned him many honors around the world, including the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Booker Prize. His work has been translated into over fifty languages, and The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, both made into acclaimed films, have each sold over two million copies. He was given a knighthood in 2018 for Services to Literature. He also holds the decorations of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from France and the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star from Japan.
