Anglo-Japanese author Kazuo Ishiguro has garnered considerable critical and popular acclaim since his novel, "The Remains of the Day", won the Booker prize in 1989. Presently, there is no adequate explication of his fiction employing a well thought-out critical framework to address some of the debates about contemporary literary and cultural studies. This book examines Ishiguro's fiction and how it tackles certain genre forms and exceptionalist cultural assumptions.
