A great book I really enjoyed. I love Ishiguro’s writing–always beautiful and elegant. This is a tale of a painter named Ono looking back on his life right before and during the second world war while also trying to arrange a marriage for his second daughter. Ono is another unreliable narrator, just like the narrator in Ishiguro’s first book, and it’s interesting to read his thoughts and views, always wondering how accurate they really are. Highly recommend. I’m looking forward to reading “The Remains of the Day” next. I read in an interview with Ishiguro that it is a more complete version of his first two books–“A Pale View of the Hills” and “An Artist of the Floating World”.
