Book Pick: Nocturnes

Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Publisher: Knopf Canada
Price: $29.95 (Hardcover)

Through five short stories, Booker Prize-winner Kazuo Ishiguro explores maintaining love and meaning in life in Nocturnes. Music underlies each story, from Crooner, in which a man serenades the wife he’s set to divorce in a gondola in Venice, to Nocturne, in which the wife from the first story meets a guitarist at a Hollywood hotel, both of them there to receive facelifts. Nocturnes takes the reader on a globe-trotting trip, sharing interconnected tales that, however unlikely, inspire reflection on life and the pursuit of fulfillment.
