Kazuo Ishiguro’s latest, The Buried Giant, is out today. The Guardian called it “Game Of Thrones with a conscience”. I loved Never Let Me Go. God, I loved that book. It’s a perfect winter book, as is The Buried Giant, during these last lonely days of dark and cold. I was in the mood for it this weekend and I mainlined it along with a few fingers of scotch. You know how light and fluffy reading can dominate spring and summer? Ending your “serious reading season” with The Buried Giant is a good way to kick off your beach book list.
