The English author Kazuo Ishiguro has today been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Citing the author’s writing, the judges said Ishiguro” in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”.

“It comes at a time when the world is uncertain about its values, its leadership and its safety,” Ishiguro said. “I just hope that my receiving this huge honour will, even in a small way, encourage the forces for goodwill and peace at this time.”

Often acclaimed as one of the greatest English writers at work today, Ishiguro is a popular winner, and has written a diverse and critically acclaimed selection of novels – from historical period novels such as ‘Remains of the Day’ to books set in a dystopian future such as ‘Never Let Me Go’.
