Kazuo Ishiguro: 2017 Nobel Laureate!

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

British writer Kazuo Ishiguro has been selected as the recipient of the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature.  Though something of a surprise pick (the writers favored to win this year's prize included Margaret Atwood and Haruki Murakami), Ishiguro's award-winning body of work has garnered critical attention and acclaim since his first book, A Pale View of Hills, was published in 1982.  The award was announced by the Swedish Academy's Permanent Secretary, Professor Sara Danius, who noted that Ishiguro is a writer "who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."

Watch the post-announcement interview with Permanent Secretary Sara Danius below!
