The celebrated debut novel from the author ofNever Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day explores the way unexpected events sometimes force our entire past to be rewritten. By turns elegiac, tender, ironic and macabre, A Pale View of the Hills is a delicately executed anatomy of trauma, told in a voice that will stay with the reader long after the closing pages.

In his highly acclaimed debut, Kazuo Ishiguro tells the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her daughter. Retreating into the past, she finds herself reliving one particular hot summer night in Nagasaki, when she and her friends struggled to rebuild their lives after the war. But then as she recalls her strange friendship with Sachiko - a wealthy woman reduced to vagrancy - the memories take on a disturbing cast.
