Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro, Faber and Faber, 2005, Signed First Edition First Impression One of the Ishiguro's best novels, possibly only second to The Remains of the Day, shortlisted for the Booker Prize, making Time Magazine's 100 best novels of the Twentieth Century and no doubt contributed significantly to Ishiguro's Nobel Prize for Literature recently.
The disturbing tale of cloned children raised in a private institution to be future donors. Critics have disagreed over its central theme (between "an extreme and heartbreaking version of the exodus of all children from the innocence in which the benevolent but fraudulent adult world conspires to place them" to being "a parable about mortality. The horribly indoctrinated voices of the Hailsham students who tell each other pathetic little stories to ward off the grisly truth about the future they belong to us; we've been told that we're all going to die, but we've not really understood.").
