Praise For…


"A page turner and a heartbreaker, a tour de force of knotted tension and buried anguish.” —Time

 

“A Gothic tour de force. . . . A tight, deftly controlled story . . . . Just as accomplished [as The Remains of the Day] and, in a very different way, just as melancholy and alarming.” —The New York Times

 

"Elegaic, deceptively lovely. . . . As always, Ishiguro pulls you under." —Newsweek

 

“Superbly unsettling, impeccably controlled . . . . The book’s irresistible power comes from Ishiguro’s matchless ability to expose its dark heart in careful increments.” —Entertainment Weekly
