The Unconsoled is an utterly original masterpiece by Kazuo Ishiguro, the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day, Never Let Me Go and The Buried Giant. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
From the Inside Flap
The Unconsoled is at once a gripping psychological mystery, a wicked satire of the cult of art, and a poignant character study of a man whose public life has accelerated beyond his control. The setting is a nameless Central European city where Ryder, a renowned pianist, has come to give the most important performance of his life. Instead, he finds himself diverted on a series of cryptic and infuriating errands that nevertheless provide him with vital clues to his own past. In The Unconsoled Ishiguro creates a work that is itself a virtuoso performance, strange, haunting, and resonant with humanity and wit.
"A work of great interest and originality.... Ishiguro has mapped out an aesthetic territory that is all his own...frankly fantastic [and] fiercer and funnier than before."--"The New Yorker --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

A compelling book, Kafkaesque (a compliment!), or perhaps with shades of Mervyn Peake. Must have.
Oh, and the scene with the broom cupboard is one of the funnisest things I've read in years.
