Kazuo Ishiguro

Kazuo Ishiguro is a Japanese-British writer. His novels include A Pale View of HillsThe Remains of the Day, and Never Let Me Go.

Because maybe, in a way, we didn’t leave it behind nearly as much as we might once have thought. Because somewhere underneath, a part of us stayed like that: fearful of the world around us, and no matter how much we despised ourselves for it — unable quite to let each other go.
