From the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go In Nocturnes, Kazuo Ishiguro explores the ideas of love, music and the passing of time. From the piazzas of Italy to the 'hush-hush floor' of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, the characters we encounter range from young dreamers to cafe musicians to faded stars, all of them at some moment of reckoning. Gentle, intimate and witty, this quintet is marked by a haunting theme: the struggle to keep alive a sense of life's romance, even as one gets older, relationships founder and youthful hope recedes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
NATIONAL BESTSELLER
A "New York Times Notable Book
""A fine and moving collection of stories, displaying [Ishiguro's] unique combination of the sad, the stoic and the consoling. It's about failure, but it dignifies failure, and with it, the human condition. There is nobody like him."
- Margaret Drabble, "The Guardian Books of the Year

""Each of these stories is heartbreaking in its own way, but some have moments of great comedy, and they all require a level of attention that, typically, Ishiguro's writing rewards."
"- The Observer
"
"An amusing read, at times very funny.... There are a number of scenes in Nocturnes that are almost worth the price of admission on their own."
"- The Globe and Mail"

"From the Hardcover edition."

“5 real gems!”

Each of these stories are great in their own right - together in one book makes this a really memorable read. The five stories are connected by the theme of music - beyond that at one level there is no connection in... More
