(1954 - )
“As a writer, I'm more interested in what people tell themselves happened rather than what actually happened”

Kazuo Ishiguro was born in Nagaskaki, Japan, but moved to Britain at the age of five. He has a keen interest in cinema and plays a number of musical instruments, his love of music is frequently evident in his writing, notably in Nocturnes, which the publisher describes as an exploration of “ideas of love, music and the passing of time”. However, his writings are diverse including a science fiction novel (Never Let Me Go) and historical fiction.

Authors are often referred to as “prize winning” but Ishiguro’s trophy shelf must surely be bulging, his first novel (1982) A Pale View of the Hills won the Winifred Holtby Prize, An Artist of the Floating World (1986) was Whitbread Book of the Year, his third novel The Remains of the Day won the 1989 Booker Prize and so on.

In 1995 Ishiguro received an OBE for Services to Literature.

Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go have both been made into films.
