Informative and beautifully written

Who would know that this Nobel Prize winner has written lyrics for Stacey Kent and is an admirer of Bob Dylan and Sherlock Holmes. I'll listen to this more than once as I embark on my goal to read and understand all of Kazua Ishiguro's books. The article mentions that Isiguro's work is like a mixture of author A and author B with a sprinkling of author C. How I love author C. No spoilers.
