Klara and The Sun – Kazuo Ishiguro


Out of stock


‘Do you believe in the human heart ?
I don’t mean simply the organ, obviously.
I’m speaking in the poetic sense.
The human heart. Do you think there
is such a thing? Something that makes
each of us special and indvidual?’

From her place in the store, Klara an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.

In Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?
