Kazuo Ishiguro's sci-fi novel masterwork. One of a collection of notable essays written by literary critic James Wood. Read by Peter Firth. From March 2014.
Highlights from an entertaining and idiosyncratic series of essays from James Wood, the leading literary critic of his generation. It's a collection which ranges widely, from a loving analysis of Keith Moon's drum technique to the intentions, gifts and limitations of some of our most celebrated modern novelists, including Kazuo Ishiguro and Ian McEwan.
2. KAZUO ISHIGURO: NEVER LET ME GO
Wood considers a masterwork that melds sci-fi with literary fiction - a cloning story that 'combines the fantastic and realistic till we can no longer separate them'.
