Inglaterra, julio de 1956. Stevens, el narrador, fue durante treinta a os mayordomo de Lord Darlington, quien muri hace tres a os, y su propiedad pertenece ahora a un norteamericano. Su nuevo patr n regresar por unas semanas a su pa s, y le ha ofrecido al mayordomo el auto para que disfrute de unas vacaciones. Y Stevens se embarca en un viaje por el pa s rumbo a Weymouth, donde vive la se ora Benn, antigua ama de llaves de Darlington Hall. Jornada a jornada, Ishiguro desplegar ante el lector una novela perfecta de luces y claroscuros para desvelar una realidad mucho m s amarga que los amables paisajes que el mayordomo deja atr s. Porque Stevens averigua que Lord Darlington fue un miembro de la clase dirigente inglesa que se dej seducir por el fascismo y conspir activamente para conseguir una alianza entre Inglaterra y Alemania. Y descubre, y tambi n el lector, que hay algo peor incluso que haber servido a un hombre indigno.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, here is the universally acclaimed novel--winner of the Booker Prize and the basis for an award-winning film.

This is Kazuo Ishiguro's profoundly compelling portrait of Stevens, the perfect butler, and of his fading, insular world in post-World War II England. Stevens, at the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall, spending a day on a country drive, embarks as well on a journey through the past in an effort to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving the great gentleman, Lord Darlington. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's greatness, and much graver doubts about the nature of his own life.
