A fascinating window into Kazuo Ishiguro’s talent as a lyricist, this stunning volume brings together the Nobel Prize-winning author’s sixteen song lyrics written for renowned American jazz singer Stacey Kent, along with luminous illustrations from Italian artist Bianca Bagnarelli.

Stacey Kent, and which have been set to music by composer/bandleader Jim Tomlinson. As the Nobel Prize-winning author explains in his introduction, he has been steadfastly following his remit, that 'however sad, however bleak the song became, there had to remain an element of hope'. The resulting lyrics are infused with yearning and the bittersweet romance of travel.

This volume has been gorgeously illustrated by acclaimed Italian comics artist Bianca Bagnarelli, who captures perfectly the varying moods, as well as the 'stories', contained in these songs.
