Today the winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Kazuo Ishigur, best known for his books The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go.
He is quoted as saying this award is “amazing and totally unexpected news”.
“It comes at a time when the world is uncertain about its values, its leadership and its safety. I just hope that my receiving this huge honour will, even in a small way, encourage the forces for goodwill and peace at this time.”
Backbeat currently has a copy of Never Let Me Go in our used book section.
