I usually pooh-pooh awards but I was suprised and pleased. A writer who's fun to read winning (?) joining a list of the gloomiest of the gloomy. Ishiguro is gloomy too come to think of it but in a mysterious, exhilarating way. There's always a sense of wonder.

And I've read all his novels. I didn't care for his last, Buried Giant, but the others I've loved in varying degrees. If I were qualified, I would proclaim that The Unconsoled is a masterpiece, today is a day I feel empowered to do so.
