In a sublime story cycle, Kazuo Ishiguro explores ideas of love, music and the passing of time. From the piazzas of Italy to the Malvern Hills, a London flat to the ‘hush-hush floor’ of an exclusive Hollywood hotel, the characters we encounter range from young dreamers to cafe musicians to faded stars, all of them at some moment of reckoning. Gentle, intimate and witty, this quintet is marked by a haunting theme: the struggle to keep alive a sense of life’s romance, even as one gets older, relationships flounder and youthful hopes recede.

Review:
"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
Book Description:
'It was our third time playing the Godfather theme since lunch...’
