Including the first published essay on his latest novel, Klara and the Sun (2021), Kazuo Ishiguro: Twenty First Century Perspectives is the first work of criticism to reappraise all of this leading transnational author’s film, television, short fiction, and novel writing following his award of the Nobel Prize in 2017. Comprising contributions from world-leading Ishiguro scholars, as well as emergent scholars, the collection offers chapters devoted to all of the author’s major works, each of which draws out thematic and stylistic connections across his writings, both literary and filmic. This timely study, following the critical and popular success of his most recent fiction, knighthood, and recognition by the Nobel committee, is the only comprehensive study of an author at the forefront of world literature.
