It is 1948. Japan is rebuilding her cities after the calamity of World War Two, her people putting defeat behind them and looking to the future. The celebrated artist, Masuji Ono, fills his days attending to his garden, his house repairs, his two grown daughters and his grandson; his evenings drinking with old associates in quiet lantern-lit bars. His should be a tranquil retirement. But as his memories continually return to the past - to a life and career deeply touched by the rise of Japanese militarism - a dark shadow begins to grow over his serenity. If you enjoyed An Artist of the Floating World, you might also like Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day, now available in Faber Modern Classics.

  1. Minnen och förändring, del 2
    Björn Järnhäll, 26 juli 2018

    Japan efter kriget (WW II). Den gamle målaren minns tiden före kriget - med stolthet och skam. Han oroar sig för att det ska påverka döttrarna. Ono förstår inte att det gamla inte har någon betydelse i den nya världen. Ichiguro skildrar detta med stor medkänsla på ett elegant sätt mellan raderna. Fantastiskt!
