THE REMAINS OF THE DAY
"It seems increasingly likely that I really will undertake the expedition that has been preoccupying my imagination now for some days."
Ishiguro's best-known work was also his first novel set in England. Following a road trip of a butler who reminisces about his work for a recently deceased lord, it is "a provocative examination of England's nostalgic, sentimental myths about its past" (Brian W. Shaffer). The film, starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, received eight Academy Award nominations. Quite a nice copy of one of the most acclaimed British novels of the late-20th century.
