About KLARA AND THE SUN:

"As with Ishiguro's other works, the rich inner reflections of his protagonists offer big takeaways, and Klara's quiet but astute observations of human nature land with profound gravity . . . This dazzling genre-bending work is a delight." --Publishers Weekly [starred review]

Klara and the Sun is a magnificent new novel from the Nobel laureate Kazuo Ishiguro - author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day.

Klara and the Sun, the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.

Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

In its award citation in 2017, the Nobel committee described Ishiguro's books as novels of great emotional force and said he has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world.

This event is presented in conjunction with Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures and Alfred A. Knopf. Due to the logistics of planning an international book event, the conversation between Kazuo Ishiguro and Madeline Miller will be prerecorded and then broadcast on April 15th at 7 pm via Crowdcast. You will receive the private link to the broadcast in your confirmation email.
