The Remains of the Day (Kazuo Ishiguro book)

Published 2021-12-31.

A beautiful novel about an aging English butler who goes for a long drive in the countryside and reminisces. It took me a little while to get into it; at first I didn’t particularly like the narrator. But by the end I was weeping. This was the best novel I read this year, and one of the best I’ve ever read. (I was a bit surprised by how much I liked it, given that I didn’t particularly enjoy Never Let Me Go.)
