Ishiguro Doesn’t Take Breaks


For the Telegraph, Gaby Wood speaks with Kazuo Ishiguro about his new release The Buried GiantThe novel is Ishiguro’s first book in ten years, however the author has not been taking a “break,” working hard to find a project that was “good enough” to complete. Like some of his past publications, the novel deals heavily with the exploration of memory. However, The Buried Giant makes a slight departure from Ishiguro’s usual approach to this theme, as it focuses more on societal memory rather than personal relationships with the past.
