Sinopsis: Opening in 1948, a novel in which a Japanese man watches his country rebuild its cities after the war, and as he watches he recalls his life and career which were deeply touched by Japanese militarism, and darkness begins to overshadow his peace. From the author of A PALE VIEW OF HILLS, THE REMAINS OF THE DAY and THE UNCONSOLED.
Críticas: In An Artist of the Floating World, Kazuo Ishiguro offers readers of the English language an authentic look at post-war Japan, "a floating world" of changing cultural behaviours, shifting societal patterns and troubling questions. Ishiguro, who was born in Nagasaki in 1954 but moved to England in 1960, writes the story of Masuji Ono, a bohemian artist and purveyor of the nightlife who became a propagandist for Japanese imperialism during the war. But the war is over. Japan lost, Ono's wife and son have been killed, and many young people blame the imperialists for leading the country to disaster. What's left for Ono? Ishiguro's treatment of this story earned a 1986 Whitbread Prize.
