Ryder a renowned pianist arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give But then as he traverses a landscape by turns eerie and comical and always strangely malleable as a dream might be he comes steadily to realise he is facing the most crucial performance of his life br br Ishiguro s extraordinary and original study of a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control was met on publication by consternation vilification and the highest praise, One of the most celebrated writers of our time gives us his first cycle of short fiction five brilliantly etched interconnected stories in which music is a vivid and essential character br br A once popular singer desperate to make a comeback turning from the one certainty in his life A man whose unerring taste in music is the only thing his closest friends value in him A struggling singer songwriter unwittingly involved in the failing marriage of a couple he s only just met A gifted underappreciated jazz musician who lets himself believe that plastic surgery will help his career A young cellist whose tutor promises to unwrap his talent br br Passion or necessity or the often uneasy combination of the two determines the place of music in each of these lives And in one way or another music delivers each of them to a moment of reckoning sometimes comic sometimes tragic sometimes just eluding their grasp br br An exploration of love need and the ineluctable force of the past Nocturnes reveals these individuals to us with extraordinary precision and subtlety and with the arresting psychological and emotional detail that has marked all of Kazuo Ishiguro s acclaimed works of fiction, In i An Artist of the Floating World i Kazuo Ishiguro offers readers of the English language an authentic look at postwar Japan a floating world of changing cultural behaviors shifting societal patterns and troubling questions Ishiguro who was born in Nagasaki in but moved to England in writes the story of Masuji Ono a bohemian artist and purveyor of the night life who became a propagandist for Japanese imperialism during the war But the war is over Japan lost Ono s wife and son have been killed and many young people blame the imperialists for leading the country to disaster What s left for Ono Ishiguro s treatment of this story earned a Whitbread Prize, Short Story A Village After Dark The New Yorker
