The Unconsoled
Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give. But then as he traverses a landscape by turns eerie and comical—and always strangely malleable, as a dream might be—he comes steadily to realise he is facing the most crucial performance of his life. Ishiguro's extraordinary and original study of a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control was met on publication by consternation, vilification—and the highest praise. The Unconsoled is an utterly original masterpiece by Kazuo Ishiguro, the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day, Never Let Me Go and The Buried Giant.
