Product Details


“Expressive and harmonic, delicate yet substantive. . . . [A] true virtuoso performance.”–Christian Science Monitor

“In both craft and substance Nocturnes reveals a master at work.”–Seattle Times
“Immaculate.”–Los Angeles Times
“Ishiguro is, as always, a master of style and tone . . . . [Nocturnes] build[s] into a melancholic soundtrack. We’re helpless to do anything but listen.”–Time Out New York

“Tight and assured. . . . Suffused with sympathy.” –-Time
“These stories recall Ishiguro’s best known novel, The Remains of the Day. . . . By now it is clear that this exquisite stylist is serious in his pursuit of a minimal – perhaps even universal – mode of expression for the emotional experiences that define our lives as human.”—The Times, London
“Superb . . . a deceptively plain and easy style that rides on the surfaces of manners and decorous behavior.”—Providence Journal
“A brilliant new book . . . art, its dangers, its pains and its gaiety [are] all topics seriously considered in this accomplished book.”-Frank Kermode, London Review of Books
“Ishiguro blends musical concepts with their literary counterparts in his latest work, and Nocturnes has the . . . quality of a song cycle with recurring themes and motifs developed in different prose keys.”–Bookmarks magazine
