A haunting and utterly original novel in which a famous pianist confronts unresolved emotional aspects of his life.

Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give. But then as he traverses a landscape by turns eerie and comical -and always strangely malleable, as a dream might be -he comes steadily to realise he is facing the most crucial performance of his life.

Ishiguro's extraordinary study of a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control was met on publication by consternation, vilification -and the highest praise.
