All about the Brit novelist with the Jap name
Kazuo Ishiguro, acclaimed author of The Remains of the Day, has a new book coming out. Nice appreciation of him here. He says: "When you are young, things like your moral stance and political position seem very important. I'd spend long nights with my friends sorting out moral and political positions that we thought would take us through adult life. But as I've got older I've realised that while it's important to have principles, you don't carefully chart your way through life. You are picked up by a wind every now and again and dumped down somewhere else."
