From the award-winning author of The Remains of the Day comes an inspired sequence of stories that is 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, it delivers to each of them an epiphany.

"A brilliant new book… Art, its dangers, its pains and its gaiety [are] all topics seriously considered in this accomplished book." — Frank Kermode, London Review of Books ISBN:9780307455789
