A Pale View of HillsBook - 1991
From the Nobel Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go
In his highly acclaimed debut, Kazuo Ishiguro tells the story of Etsuko, a Japanese woman now living alone in England, dwelling on the recent suicide of her daughter.
Retreating into the past, she finds herself reliving one particular hot summer night in Nagasaki, when she and her friends struggled to rebuild their lives after the war. But then as she recalls her strange friendship with Sachiko - a wealthy woman reduced to vagrancy - the memories take on a disturbing cast.

"You see, Etsuko, she turned around and smiled at Mariko. I knew something was wrong and Mariko must have known too because she stopped running. At first I thought the woman was blind, she had that kind of look, her eyes didn't seem to see anything. Well, she brought her arms out of the canal and showed us what she'd been holding under the water. it was a baby. I took hold of Mariko then and we came out of the alley..." "Five, almost six. She saw other things in Tokyo. But she always remembers that woman." p.74
