Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A tragic, spiritual portrait of a perfect English butler and his reaction to his fading insular world in post-war England. A wonderful, wonderful book.


Review:

"THE REMAINS OF THE DAY is in fact a brilliant subversion of the fictional modes from which it at first seems to descend....A story both beautiful and cruel...."

Salman Rushdie, Observer (London)

Review:

"A fine piece of storytelling, this novel...also gives the reader a unique lens through which to attain a fresh view of the postcolonial age, focusing on how the collapse of colonialism led to major social upheavals, both tribal and global warfare, and the rise of totalitarian states....The core of the novel concerns the colonialism of the heart, and the destruction caused by the suppression of the human instinct to love."

Robert Stone
