Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 345 pages. Published in 2015. The author's seventh novel. One of the most important literary events of our time. The Waterstone's Special Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the First Hardcover Edition itself, which is British, and the American Edition, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page in the case of the latter. Published by the legendary London bookstore in a small and limited one-time-only print run as a hardcover original. The Waterstone's Special Edition has elegantly enhanced black-painted page edges, which was done for this Special Edition only. This copy also comes with the Souvenir Postcard and Bookmark that were issued to celebrate the novel's release. The Special Edition is now scarce. Presents, in a lovely collectible format, and after a ten-year hiatus, Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Buried Giant". "Completely astonishing. I can't think of another writer who keeps finding such new and radically unexpected ways of exploring - and deepening - his lifelong concerns. Which is a way of saying that I can't think of another writer who is so unswervingly serious as well as impeccable, stripping away every distraction to get to the core of things, as a Beckett might, and attaining in the end an almost unbearable intensity of emotional directness" (Pico Iyer). "The weirdest, riskiest, and most ambitious thing he has published in his celebrated 33-year career" (Alexandra Alter). "An original and remarkable genius" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Kazuo Ishiguro collectors. This copy of the Waterstone's Special Edition is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Kazuo Ishiguro. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as many signed copies of the American Edition are. It also comes with the Souvenir Postcard and Bookmark that were issued to celebrate the novel's release. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Waterstone's Special Edition with Souvenir Materials still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The Waterstone's Special Edition precedes both the First Hardcover Edition (which is British) and the First American Edition. It has elegantly enhanced black-painted page edges, which were done for this Special Edition only. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Whitbread Prize in 1986 for "An Artist of The Floating World". Winner of the Booker Prize in 1989 for "The Remains of The Day". One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy.

Synopsis: From the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize-winning The Remains of the Day
 
The Romans have long since departed and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But, at least, the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. Axl and Beatrice, a couple of elderly Britons, decide that now is the time, finally, for them to set off across this troubled land of mist and rain to find the son they have not seen for years, the son they can scarcely remember. They know they will face many hazards?some strange and otherworldly?but they cannot foresee how their journey will reveal to them the dark and forgotten corners of their love for each other. Nor can they foresee that they will be joined on their journey by a Saxon warrior, his orphan charge, and a knight?each of them, like Axl and Beatrice, lost in some way to his own past, but drawn inexorably toward the comfort, and the burden, of the fullness of a life?s memories.

Sometimes savage, sometimes mysterious, always intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro?s first novel in a decade tells a luminous story about the act of forgetting and the power of memory, a resonant tale of love, vengeance, and war.

Product Description: This is an extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day. 'You've long set your heart against it, Axl, I know. But it's time now to think on it anew. There's a journey we must go on, and no more delay...' The Buried Giant begins as a couple set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen in years. Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war. "Kazuo Ishiguro is an original and remarkable genius". (The New York Times). "A master craftsman". (Margaret Atwood, Slate). "The best and most original writer of his generation". (Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday).
