October 2009 Indie Next List
“Each of Kazuo Ishiguro's five short stories stands on its own, but they also read as an ensemble, and their slow and gentle power will carry readers away. The writing is full of heartbreak and loss, full of the sweet music of memory, and full of spare descriptions that paint a picture perfectly. Utterly sublime.”
— Joe Eichman, Tattered Cover Bookstore, Denver, CO
