Never afraid to tackle big themes, nor to use SF or fan­tasy

The Guardian - Review - - Review - Neil Gaiman

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.

Never Let Me Go (2010)
