Publisher's Summary

Delivered in Stockholm on 7 December 2017, 'My Twentieth Century Evening and Other Small Breakthroughs' is the lecture of the Nobel Laureate in Literature Kazuo Ishiguro.

A generous and hugely insightful biographical sketch, it explores his relationship with his homeland of Japan, reflections on his own novels and an insight into some of his inspirations from the worlds of writing, music and film.

Ending with a rallying call for the ongoing importance of literature in the world, it is a characteristically thoughtful and moving piece.
