In the summer of 1956, Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the countryside and into his past . . . A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro's beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House, of lost causes and lost love. 'A remarkable, strange and moving book.' Independent 'A triumph ... This wholly convincing portrait of a human life unweaving before your eyes is inventive and absorbing, by turns funny, absurd, and ultimately very moving.' Sunday Times 'A dream of a book: a beguiling comedy of manners that evolves almost magically into a profound and heart-rending study of personality, class and culture.' New York Times Book Review

    A great work, a must-read of Kazuo Ishiguro, who is one of the most respectable and remarkable writers of our times.

    un libro che ci metterà un po' a sedimentare, con delle belle e interessanti riflessioni e qualche punta di rammarico.
