In his highly acclaimed debut, A Pale View of Hills, Kazuo Ishiguro tells the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her daughter. Retreating into the past, she finds herself reliving one particular hot summer in Nagasaki, when she and her friends struggled to rebuild their lives after the war. But then as she recalls her strange friendship with Sachiko - a wealthy woman reduced to vagrancy - the memories take on a disturbing cast.

Review:
An original and remarkable genius. (New York Times)

A macabre and faultlessly worked enigma. (Sunday Times)

A delicate, ironic, elliptical novel. Its characters are remarkably convincing. but what one remembers is its balance, halfway between elegy and irony. (New York Times Book Review)
Book Description:
Beautiful new paperback Faber Firsts edition to commemorate Faber's 80th Anniversary
