"'Ishiguro is the best and most original novelist of his generation.' Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday"Reseña del editor:
Kazuo Ishiguro has been acclaimed in the Sunday Times for 'extending the possibilities of fiction'. In Never Let Me Go he has fashioned another remarkable story - a story of love, loss and hidden truths - that takes its place among his finest work.
Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham - an idyllic establishment situated deep in the English countryside. The children there were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special, and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there?
It is only years later that Kathy, now aged thirty-one, finally allows herself to yield to the pull of memory. What unfolds is the haunting story of how Kathy, Ruth and Tommy slowly come to face the truth about their seemingly happy childhoods - and about their futures.
Never Let Me Go is a uniquely moving novel, charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of our lives.

Descripción Faber & Faber, 2005. Hardcover. Condición: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. SIGNED to title-page by the recipient of the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature. An exceptional copy. Very Fine indeed in dust-wrapper. Far less commonly encountered than the limited edition format, the regular trade edition, as here, is second only to "Remains of the Day" in terms of collector popularity, and continues to climb admirably. Importantly, provenance (so rarely offered for Ishiguro) is supplied here by the inclusion of the original ticket to Ishiguro's March 15th 2005 event at the London Southbank Centre. To sum up, the finest copy one is likely to ever encounter of this key book and rarely offered with provenance. D. B.
