Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall

Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall - Kazuo Ishiguro Mr Ishiguro's writing is the best I have ever come across, he is simply the best, he won Booker's prize for 'the remains of the day' and he deserves the Nobel and the Pulitzer too, I hope he wins it. The book, as the title suggests, is made up of five short stories. All the heros are musicians, they are nostalgic about the past. Also the others characters talk about their lost love and ended marriages. There some humour mixed with sadness. As usual, there is pcshycological depth in the stories. For those who loved "Remains of the Day", you will not be disappointed. In my opinion, starting from Ishiguro's second part of his literary life, he is more mature, talking about universal topics and not limited to Japan like in the first books. He is really wonderful and sublime.
