Description
(Man Booker Prize Winner) Long before Carson, the stoic butler managing Downton Abbey's household staff, there was Stevens, the central character in this novel by the author of Never Let Me Go and Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall. In this profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world in postwar England, Stevens has come to the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall and embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving "a great gentleman." But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness" and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served. Also a 1993 Oscar-nominated film of the same name, Kazuo Ishiguro's novel was deemed by the New York Times Book Review as "a dream of a book: a beguiling comedy of manners that evolves almost magically into a profound and heart-rending study of personality, class and culture."
