An artist of the Floating World
"A gentle, moving tragicomedy... Ishiguro gives us a vignette of a moment in cultural history which is as complete, in its own way, as Washington Square" (London Review of Books)
" A work of spare elegance: refined, understated, economic" (Sunday Times)
1948. Japan is rebuilding her cities after the calamity of WWII, her people putting defeat behind them and looking to the future. The celebrated painter Masuji Ono fills his days attending to his garden, his house repairs, his two grown daughters and his grandson, and his evenings drinking with old associates in quiet lantern-lit bars. His should be a tranquil retirement. But as his memories continually return to the past - to a life and a career deeply touched by the rise of Japanese militarism - a dark shadow begins to grow over his serenity.
