The title of this volume illustrates the significance of margins and the instability of demarcation in the fiction of Kazuo Ishiguro. The author approaches Ishiguro's writings as a corpus rather than separate units, examining the novels to illuminate their generic, theoretical or stylistic affiliations. The chapters attend to seemingly peripheral elements - trivial details, incoherent conversations, hackneyed notions, minor characters and everyday occurrences - in order to expose what is deliberately obscured or contained within the explicit narrative.
The poststructuralist approach and the structuralist objective of this study may appear incongruous, but the seemingly incompatible pairing in fact articulates a number of paradoxes that Ishiguro's novels manifest: the alterity of the international, the disclosure of the concealed, the innovation of the banal, the significance of the trivial, the presence of the absent and the accord of the cacophonous.
