A special hardback gift edition

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.

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. His third book, 1989’s The Remains of the Day, firmly secured his reputation, winning the Booker Prize. His other acclaimed books include: When We Were OrphansAn Artist of the Floating WorldNever Let Me Go and The Buried Giant

MEDIA REVIEWS

"We get a picture of a man trying desperately to keep a lid on his emotions – and what a complete picture it is. The Remains of the Day does that most wonderful thing a work of literature can do: it makes you feel you hold a human life in your hands." - The Guardian
