Axl and Beatrice, an elderly British couple, set off to visit their son, whom they haven't seen in years.

Nocturnes

by Kazuo Ishiguro, Nocturnes Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Nocturnes book, Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall is a 2009 collection of short fiction by Kazuo Ishiguro. After six novels, it is Ishiguro's first collection of short stories. As the subtitle suggests, each of the five stories focuses on music and musicians, and the close of day. They are stories that revolve around the relationship between music and human relationships, about hopeless romantic relationships that have reached their end, and the feelings of remorse and disappointment in life. Ishiguro uses music as a backdrop to the novel of these complex relationships of love and desire among humans. The famous international novelist cleverly puts his signature mark on each story as he famously does with his novels, with dialogues revealing the true nature of the characters, their quirks and habits, and their unattained aspirations and dreams.

When We Were Orphans

by Kazuo Ishiguro, When We Were Orphans Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download When We Were Orphans book, Christopher Banks, an English boy born in early-twentieth-century Shanghai, is orphaned at age nine when his mother and father both vanish under suspicious circumstances. Sent to live in England, he grows up to become a renowned detective and, more than twenty years later, returns to Shanghai, where the Sino-Japanese War is raging, to solve the mystery of the disappearances. The story is straightforward. Its telling is remarkable. Christopher's voice is controlled, detailed, and detached, its precision unsurprising in someone who has devoted his life to the examination of details and the rigors of objective thought. But within the layers of his narrative is slowly revealed what he can't, or won't, see: that his memory, despite what he wants to believe, is not unaffected by his childhood tragedies; that his powers of perception, the heralded clarity of his vision, can be blinding as well as enlightening; and that the simplest desires a child's for his parents, a man's for understanding may give rise to the most complicated truths.

Download Nocturnes book, 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.
