Kazuo Ishiguro: Never Let Me Go

Hosted by

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.
