The magnificent new novel from Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro--author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day. An international literary event, it will be published simultaneously on March 2, 2021, by Knopf Canada, Faber & Faber in the UK and Alfred A. Knopf in the US. Klara and the Sun, the first publication by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, is a thrilling feat of world-building, and a heartbreaking novel of tenderness and humanity. It gives us an unexpected glimpse into the modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love? In 2017, Ishiguro was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. In its award citation, the Nobel committee described his books as "novels of great emotional force" and said that he has "uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."
