A Pale View of Hills
Kazuo Ishiguro's highly acclaimed debut, first published in 1982, tells the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her daughter. Retreating into the past, she finds herself reliving one particular hot summer in Nagasaki, when she and her friends struggled to rebuild their lives after the war. But as she recalls her strange friendship with Sachiko—a wealthy woman reduced to vagrancy—the memories start to take on a disturbing cast. A Pale View of Hills is the haunting debut novel from Booker Prize-winning Kazuo Ishiguro.
