Kazuo Ishiguro in conversation with John Wilson

Kazuo Ishiguro's seven previous books have won him wide renown and many honours around the world including the Man Booker Prize. His work has been translated into over 40 languages. The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go have each sold in excess of 1m copies, and both were adapted into highly-acclaimed films. His latest book and first novel in a decade, The Buried Giant, is set in a post-Arthurian England and deals with memories, love, revenge and war. Kazuo Ishiguro discusses the inspiration behind The Buried Giant, and looks at the themes it shares with his other works.
