Most widely held works by Kazuo Ishiguro
The remains of the day by Kazuo Ishiguro( Book )
213 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 5,830 libraries worldwide
The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence
Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro( Book )
168 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 5,677 libraries worldwide
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is

"England, 1930s. Christopher Banks has become the country's most celebrated detective, his cases the talk of London society. Yet one unsolved crime always haunted him: the mysterious disappearance of his parents, in Old Shanghai, when he was a small boy. Now, as the world lurches towards total war, Banks realizes that the time has come for him to return to the city of his childhood and at last solve the mystery - that only by doing so will civilization be saved from the approaching catastrophe. Moving between London and Shanghai of the inter-war years, When We Were Orphans is a story of memory, intrigue and the need to return: of a childhood vision of the world surviving deep into adulthood, indelibly shaping and distorting a person's life"--Page 4 of cover

"An extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day. "You've long set your heart against it, Axl, I know.

La escuela se ocupa bien de sus estudiantes, enseNAndoles arte y literatura y todo lo necesario para que se conviertan en el tipo de persona que la sociedad espera. Pero, curiosamente, en Hailsham no se enseNa nada sobre el mundo exterior, un mundo con el que casi todo contacto estA prohibido. Dentro de Hailsham, Kathy y sus amigos Ruth y Tommy crecen indiferentes ante el resto del mundo, pero serA solamente cuando finalmente dejen la seguridad de la escuela que se darAn cuenta de lo que Hailsham en realidad esconde. Nunca me abandones rompe con los limites de la novela literaria. Es un misterio conmovedor, una hermosa historia de amor, una critica mordaz de la arrogancia humana y tambien una investigaciOn moral de cOmo tratamos a la gente mAs vulnerable en nuestra sociedad. En su exploraciOn del tema de la memoria y el impacto del pasado en un posible futuro, Ishiguro ha creado su libro mAs conmovedor hasta la fecha. From the Trade Paperback edition
