INTERNATIONAL FICTIONBy the Booker
Following his 1989 Man Booker Prize win for The Remains of the Day and the film adaptation of his 2005 shortlisted novel Never Let Me Go, British-Japanese author Kazuo Ishiguro is back with his first title in a decade. The Buried Giant (Knopf Canada) is about a couple on a journey across post-war Britain in search of their long-lost son. Touching on themes of love, nostalgia, war, and history, Ishiguro’s latest is bound to be moving.
Booker Prize winner Anne Enright (The Gathering) elucidates the delicate and complicated structure of family in The Green Road (M&S). The story follows an aging woman and her children – now grown up and carrying on their lives in different countries – and the baggage that comes with the sale of their family home.
One of only three authors ever to receive the Man Booker Prize twice, Peter Carey returns in January with Amnesia (Random House Canada), about a journalist’s attempt to vindicate a young Australian woman after she sets loose thousands of American prisoners by cyber-hacking in the name of justice.
