Kazuo Ishiguro: Klara and the Sun

In Conversation with Rumaan Alam
Co-presented by Greenlight Bookstore
Kazuo Ishiguro and Rumaan Alam

Kazuo Ishiguro–author of Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day—discusses Klara and the Sun, his first new novel since winning the Nobel Prize.

Set in the near future, Klara is told through the eyes of an Artificial Friend (AF), a humanlike robot designed to be a child’s companion. It is “a surprising parable about love, humanity, and science,” writes Publishers Weekly. “As with Ishiguro’s other works, the rich inner reflections of his protagonists offer big takeaways. Klara’s quiet but astute observations of human nature land with profound gravity.”

Copies of Klara and the Sun may be purchased with your ticket, courtesy of Greenlight Bookstore. The first 250 copies sold will include a bookplate signed by Ishiguro (shipped separately). If you are purchasing a book bundle, please include your shipping address during checkout, or email us.
