Never afraid to tackle big themes, nor to use SF or fantasy
Ijust feel unalloyed delight about the news. Kazuo Ishiguro is a good, serious, brilliant and hardworking writer who has never been afraid to tackle big themes, nor to use science fiction ( Never Let Me Go) or fantasy ( The Buried Giant) as the vehicles he needed to drive his ideas.
It’s a refreshing and intelligent choice by the Nobel committee. The only cloud I can imagine would be if this takes Ishiguro too long away from his writing desk.
