The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day
The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased.
The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards - some strange and otherworldly - but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.
Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge, and war.

"It's striking to find a novel that makes us feel ambivalent about the removal of a dictator, and about the very process of uncovering information about its characters - something all novels do. And where The Buried Giant truly moves Ishiguro into new territory isn't so much in its fantasy elements - which are downplayed - but in a wider sweep...[to] explore the role of shared memories." (Mike Doherty, Maclean's)
