Award season is upon us! George Saunders just won the Man Booker prize for "Lincoln in the Bardo" (which we read in David Ulin's literary series last year). Viet Ngyuen just won a "MacArthur Genius Award" after writing his celebrated novel about Vietnam, "The Sympathizer" (which we read with David this past summer).
Now, we turn our attention to this year's winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. We hope you can join David Ulin for this close reading of of Ishiguro's masterpiece, "The Remains of the Day." This unforgettable novel, about a butler (made immortal by Anthony Hopkins in the film of the same name) serving an English lord in the years leading up to World War II, explores themes of mortality, the fallibility of memory and the porous nature of time. Although it is not his only great novel, it certainly embodies the genius lauded by the Nobel Committee. If you haven't read this literary gem, this is a fantastic opportunity to experience Ishiguro's literary virtuosity. If you are coming to this novel for a second read, David's insightful commentary on literature will surely deepen your appreciation of what makes a Nobel laureate.
