    The Remains of the Day is a profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world in postwar England. At the end of his three decades of service at Darlington Hall, Stevens embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving "a great gentleman". But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness" and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served.

Instead, he finds himself diverted on a series of cryptic and infuriating errands that nevertheless provide him with vital clues to his own past.

    From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it.

Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give.

    Kazuo Ishiguro, 2017 mit dem Literaturnobelpreis ausgezeichnet, ist als Autor bekannt, der sensible Themen eindrucksvoll thematisiert. Auch in diesem Roman, der die Grenzen des medizinisch Machbaren scheinbar realistisch überschreitet. Erzählerischer Grundton dieses 2006 mit dem Corine-Preis ausgezeichneten Werks ist eine klassische Pubertäts- und Internatsgeschichte. Allerdings steigert sich diese Geschichte zum Thriller durch das dunkle Geheimnis, das auf den Jungen und Mädchen lastet.

    In Nocturnes, a sublime story cycle, Kazuo Ishiguro explores ideas of love, music and the passing of time. From the piazzas of Italy to the Malvern Hills, a London flat to the "hush-hush floor" of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, the characters we encounter range from young dreamers to cafe musicians to faded stars, all of them at some moment of reckoning. Gentle, intimate, and witty, this quintet is marked by a haunting them: the struggle to keep alive a sense of life's romance, even as one gets older.
