WHO: Kazuo Ishiguro
WHAT: The Nobel Prize in Literature
WHEN: Announced on October 5, 2017
WHERE: He lives in London.
WHY: “I’ve always thought that Ish is an amazing writer. The breadth of his work as a novelist is astonishing. We’ve had the good fortune of being his publisher since THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, a book that readers around the world have come to cherish. This acknowledgment from the Swedish academy is the most wonderful news, and a very happy occasion for all of us at Knopf and Vintage, and indeed, everyone at Penguin Random House worldwide.”
