A report in The Guardian had quoted Faber editorial director Angus Cargill describing the book as “a novel about the human heart that speaks urgently to the here and now, but from another place”. Cargill added, “As ever with Ishiguro’s writing, it manages to be both thrillingly surprising yet consistent with his whole body of work.”

The Japan-born British author is among the most celebrated contemporary writers. Previously he had won a Man Booker Prize in 1989 for his work, Remains of the Day. His other famous work includes, Never Let Me Go. Both were adapted to films. One of the most recurring themes in his work is memory and time and their relationship.
