Product description

Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER A "New York Times Notable Book ""A fine and moving collection of stories, displaying [Ishiguro's] unique combination of the sad, the stoic and the consoling. It's about failure, but it dignifies failure, and with it, the human condition. There is nobody like him." - Margaret Drabble, "The Guardian Books of the Year ""Each of these stories is heartbreaking in its own way, but some have moments of great comedy, and they all require a level of attention that, typically, Ishiguro's writing rewards." "- The Observer " "An amusing read, at times very funny.... There are a number of scenes in Nocturnes that are almost worth the price of admission on their own." "- The Globe and Mail" "From the Hardcover edition."
