Description
From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, here is the universally acclaimed novel—winner of the Booker Prize and the basis for an award-winning film. This is Kazuo Ishiguro's profoundly compelling portrait of Stevens, the perfect butler, and of his fading, insular world in post-World War II England. Stevens, at the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall, spending a day on a country drive, embarks as well on a journey through the past in an effort to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving the "great gentleman," Lord Darlington. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness," and much graver doubts about the nature of his own life.

        "An intricate and dazzling novel." --The New York Times "Brilliant and quietly devastating." --Newsweek "A virtuoso performance ... put on with dazzling daring and aplomb." --The New York Review of Books "A perfect novel. I couldn't put it down." --Ann Beattie "The novel rests firmly on the narrative sophistication and flawless control of tone ... of a most impressive novelist."

        September 12, 1990
        Stevens, an elderly butler who has spent 30 years in the service of Lord Darlington, ruminates on the past and inadvertently slackens his rigid grip on his emotions to confront the central issues of his life. PW called this Booker Prize-winner ``a tour de force--both a compelling psychological study and a portrait of a vanished social order.'' Author tour.
