though, living in japan has completely put me off murakami, so maybe it has put me off ishiguro, too.
But there aren't many similarities between them, other than that they're both Japanese-born male authors, are there? I always think of Ishiguro as very English, but then, I've never been to Japan, so perhaps he is quite Japanese after all.
The book is a collection of five stories around the theme of music. I've read the first two so far, and Ishiguro's typical style of a narrator who only half understands what's going on, really survives in shorter stories too.
