Kazuo Ishiguro - Klara and the Sun signed limited 1st edn
Signed limited first edition - limited to 200 copies worldwide.
'This is a novel for fans of Never Let Me Go . . . tender, touching and true.' The Times
'The Sun always has ways to reach us.'
From her place in the store, Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.
In Klara and the Sun, his first novel since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly-changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?
'A novelist of dazzling ingenuity and depth.' Times Literary Supplement
'A rare and mysterious writer, always surprising to me, with every book.' Michael Ondaatje
'A literary iconoclast.' New York Times
'Klara and the Sun once again marks Ishiguro as a master of the ache of missed opportunities and lost connections, as he unpicks the tangled web of how we forge relationships with others and how we deny them too.' Vogue
