Never Let Me Go (Knopf)
Kazuo Ishiguro never tells more than he has to--his stripped-down narratives are filled with absence and mystery. In this science fiction derived narrative, he refuses to follow convention-he doesn't invent a complete world. Instead, he wants us, as readers, to fill in the gaps while he clobbers us with sinister surprises.
