§ First American edition. British writer Kazuo Ishiguro won the 1989 Booker Prize for The Remains of the Day, which sold over a million copies and was the basis of a wonderful film starring Anthony Hopkins. When We Were Orphans, his fifth novel, has been called "his fullest achievement yet" (The New York Times Book Review) and was on the Booker shortlist. In 2017, the Swedish Academy awarded Ishiguro the Nobel Prize in Literature, describing him in its citation as a writer "who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world" Item #124187
