We’re thrilled to hear that Kazuo Ishiguro was just awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. He’s one of our favorite writers of literary fiction, with strong emphasis on character.
He often experiments with different settings, main characters, and genres. We would especially recommend the book capital When We Were Orphans, a haunting story about growing up, sacrifice, and love. But we won’t tell you what genre it is… You need to read it to figure it out. Come to the library and take a look at his books or some of our brand new acquisitions.
We loved this NYTimes description of Ishiguro's work:
Ms. Ferguson is one of the librarians at the Brooklyn Tech Library. We look forward to seeing you in the library!
