The Remains of the Day

by Kazuo Ishiguro

4.4/5

A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro’s beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House. In the summer of 1956, Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the English countryside and into his past.

“The rest of my life stretches out as an emptiness before me.”
