SHORT STORY REVIEW A VILLAGE AFTER DARK BY KAZUO ISHIGURO

A VILLAGE AFTER DARK BY KAZUO ISHIGURO – Ishiguro has developed a reputation as one of Britain's most ambitious and sophisticated writers.  A Village After Dark was never intended by the author to be an autonomous story.  It was written as an experiment geared towards working out certain narrative techniques he was exploring while writing The Unconsoled.  The protagonist arrives in a village to accomplish an unspecific but urgent and important task; his past life in the village can only be inferred vaguely. The following list represents his novels to date.
  1. A Pale View of Hills
  2. An Artist of the Floating World
  3. The Remains of the Day
  4. The Unconsoled
  5. When We Were Orphans
  6. Never Let Me Go
