Stok horm : The 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to Japan-born English author Kazuo Ishiguro. The 62-year-old has written eight books, and scripts for film and television, with most associated themes being memory, time, and self-delusion. Ishiguro “in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”, said the Nobel foundation

Ishiguro, who was born in Nagasaki, lived in England for almost 30 years before he made his first trip back to Japan in 1989. He reportedly wasn’t aware of his home town’s significance as the target of a US atomic bomb in August 1945 until reading about it in a British textbook.
