Kazuo Ishiguro Is Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature

Intern Intern - Friday, October 06, 2017

Congratulations to British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro on winning the Nobel Prize in Literature!

Tackling such themes as the fallibility of memory, mortality and the porous nature of time, Ishiguro's body of work stands out for his inventive subversion of literary genres, his acute sense of place and his masterly parsing of the British class system. Cheers Mr. Ishiguro!

If you'd like to learn about Ishiguro's big win and his career as a novelist, this New York Times article is worth a read: http://ow.ly/cMIu30fHKYC
