Winner of the Booker Prize 1989

After all what can we ever gain in forever looking back and blaming ourselves if our lives have not turned out quite as we might have wished?

In the summer of 1956, Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the English countryside and into his past...

A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is  Nobel Prize-winner Kazuo Ishiguro's beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House, of lost causes and lost love.

The Remains of the Day is now available as a Faber Modern Classics edition.

Recipient of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature, British author Kazuo Ishiguro’s writing career began with 1982’s acclaimed novel A Pale View of Hills.
