The 2017 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, British author Kazuo Ishiguro writes the kinds of books that stay with you for years—decades, even—after you read them. Unrestrained by genre, Ishiguro writes clear, nimble prose that brilliantly probes the essential conundrums of the human condition with haunting resonance. To celebrate his well-deserved recognition, we're offering three of our favorite Ishiguro titles for your library. The Remains of the Day, his Booker Prize-winning masterpiece (and the inspiration for the Academy Award-nominated film), is a poignant study of England between the Great Wars through the eyes of a butler in the twilight of his career. In Never Let Me Go, the narrator looks back on her time in an exclusive British boarding school, gradually uncovering the dark, life-altering secrets of the institution and its students. Nocturnes comprises five “stories of music and nightfall”—harmonious vignettes about musicians, songwriters, and music junkies that possess, yes, a fair share of melancholy, but also rueful humor and profound moments of epiphany. These contemporary classics are essential additions to a serious reader's collection. Go ahead and Purchase All Three for a 10% discount—you won't be disappointed. (AG)
