The Remains of the Day

The Remains of the Day is a profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world in post-war England. At the end of his three decades of service at Darlington Hall, Stevens embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving a great gentleman. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's greatness and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served.

Kazuo Ishiguro is the author of six novels, including "The Unconsoled" and the international bestsellers "Never Let Me Go" and "The Remains of the Day," winner of the Booker Prize.
