Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall
Paperback - English

One of the most celebrated writers of our time delivers his first cycle of short fiction: five brilliantly etched, interconnected stories in which music is a vivid and essential character. ...

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature and author of the Booker Prize-winning novel The Remains of the Day comes an inspired sequence of stories as affecting as it is beautiful.

With the clarity and precision that have become his trademarks, Kazuo Ishiguro interlocks five short pieces of fiction to create a world that resonates with emotion, heartbreak, and humor. Here is a fragile, once famous singer, turning his back on the one thing he loves; a music junky with little else to offer his friends but opinion; a songwriter who inadvertently breaks up a marriage; a jazz musician who thinks the answer to his career lies in changing his physical appearance; and a young cellist whose tutor has devised a remarkable way to foster his talent. For each, music is a central part of their lives and, in one way or another, delivers them to an epiphany.
