Category: Fiction
Known for his use of "unreliable narrators," Ishiguro takes the concept to a new level with The Unconsoled. When a renowned concert pianist arrives in a foreign city, his memories and experiences become inexplicably muddled with those of the city's inhabitants. A read that is frustrating by design - Ishiguro, writing of anxiety and confusion, conjures them in the reader. The book is a harrowing depiction of how we turn a blind eye towards painful truths.
