Waterstones Says

A luminous new novel from the Nobel Prize-winning author of Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day, Klara and the Sun explores the uncharted implications of AI to human relationships and the abiding question of what it means to love.

Exclusive edition - includes exclusive sprayed edges and endpapers

A standard edition is available here.

Longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021.

From the bestselling and Booker Prize winning author of Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day, a stunning new novel - his first since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature - that asks, what does it mean to love?

The novel tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.

A thrilling feat of world-building, a novel of exquisite tenderness and impeccable restraint, Klara and the Sun is a magnificent achievement, and an international literary event.
