Winner of the 1990 Booker Prize. A witty meditation of the democratic responsibilites of the ordinary man, his duty to employer and family, and a poignant tale of thwarted idealism, this is perhaps Ishiguro's finest novel. The Remains of the Day is a charming, amusing and moving story which captures the reader's imagination from the first sentence.
