Having earned an international reputation with his booker-prize-winning novel, The Remains of the Day, Kazuo Ishiguro is fast emerging as an important cultural figure of our times. In this guide to Ishiguro's varied and often experimental work, Wai-chew Sim presents: * a biographical survey of Ishiguro's literary career, and an introduction to his novels, plays and short stories * an accessible overview of the contexts and many interpretations of his work, from publication to the present * discussions of key topics in Ishiguro criticism such as narrative theory, multicultural Britain and postcolonial studies, psychoanalytic criticism, and Ishiguro as international writer * cross-references between sections of the guide, in order to suggest links between texts, contexts and criticism * suggestions for further reading. Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series, this volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of Kazuo Ishiguro and seeking not only a guide to his works but also a way through the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds them.
