Yey! I wasn’t totally enamored with The Buried Giant and Nocturnes (and I’ve yet to read The Unconsoled and An Artist of the Floating World), but I’m a fan of his on the basis of Never Let Me Go, The Remains of the Day, and When We were Orphans alone.
Congratulations, Mr. Ishiguro!

Oh, that’s good news! I’ve only ever read Remains of the Day – I need to catch up.
You *have* read one of his all-time best then, though!
It’s been … good grief, I suppose decades since I read it. Someday soon I need to revisit.
Or read another book by him …
And in an interview I read he sounds genuinely modest and unassuming. These days that’s refreshing.
Very, yes. And that‘s the way he comes across to me as well.
