A Pale View of Hills

A Pale View of Hills

Author(s): Kazuo Ishiguro

Location(s): London, Nagasaki

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Early 2000s and post WW2

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.
