$40.00

British author Kazuo Ishiguro is the recipient of some of the most prestigious literary awards, including the Booker Prize and the Nobel Prize in Literature. His unadorned prose and deeply connected narrations submerge readers completely, leading them down subtle plots alongside vivid characters. Without question, Ishiguro is a living master of literary fiction, a generational talent on par with the most canonized authors of the last 200 years. In Unconsoled, Ishiguro challenges readers to join Ryder, a concert pianist, over the course of three busy days. Ryder is befuddled, anxious, struggling to maintain himself ahead of a major performance. The initial response was poor with critics complaining about the central character’s flaws, but over the course of the last two decades, they have revisited The Unconsoled with more discerning eyes, and today it is considered one of Ishiguro’s best works.

This first American edition is in fine condition. In the original half cloth boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, especially fine.

A fine first American edition of The Unconsoled.
