Ishiguro has won the Booker prize once, in 1989 for “The Remains of the Day,” a tale of life in the English manor, Darlington Hall, during the period between the world wars. The story is told by the butler, and the movie adaptation starred Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson. He’s been shortlisted for the prize on four other occasions.

In 2008, Ishiguro spoke with the Paris Review. He said, "I'd wanted for some time to write a novel about how societies remember and forget. I'd written about how individuals come to terms with uncomfortable memories. It occurred to me that the way an individual remembers and forgets is quite different to the way a society does. When is it better to just forget?"
