The Buried Giant

by Kazuo Ishiguro

‘There’s a journey we must go on, and no more delay…’ The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards - some strange and other-worldly - but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another. Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war. ‘Kazuo Ishiguro is an original and remarkable genius.’ The New York Times ‘A master craftsman.’ Margaret Atwood, Slate ‘The best and most original writer of his generation.’ Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday
