Near fine tight copy, unread, near fine glossy wrappers, slight triangular fold to outer edge along the bottom of the front wrapper. From the universally acclaimed author of "The Remains of the Day" — a mesmerizing new novel of completely unexpected mood and matter. Ryder, a pianist of international renown, arrives in a European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give. The landscape he finds himself traversing is by turns eerie and comical and, always, strangely malleable — as a dream might be, or a nightmare, or the day-to-day reality of a man whose public self has taken on a life of its own. In "The Unconsoled," Kazuo Ishiguro has given us a masterful creation: a seamless fictional universe both wholly unrecognizable and familiar that is, as well, a profoundly haunting, back-of-the-mirror reflection of our own.

When the public, day-to-day reality of a renowned pianist takes on a life of its own, he finds himself traversing landscapes that are by turns eerie, comical, and strangely malleable.
