Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall

Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall, by Kazui Ishiguro, first edition cover

Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall (2009) by Kazuo Ishiguro.  A collection of short stories, or more precisely, a story-cycle, Ishiguro’s first, after five novels, including A Pale View of Hills (1982), and The Remains of the Day (1989), awarded the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 1989. ( A film adaptation of The Remains of the Day, made in 1993 and starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, was nominated for eight Academy Awards.)  Nocturnes’ stories all have, as a thematic element, musicians, music and, perhaps to a lesser extent, nightfall.  They are all well-written and vary from amusing to comic, sad to annoying, with an often trying dose of absurdity.

We recommend that you buy your books.  Have a wonderful personal library..
