Kazuo Ishiguro: Klara and the Sun

When

Thursday 29 April 2021 from 6pm to 7pm

Cost

Premium: $40Adult: $35Concession: $30

A master of modern fiction, Kazuo Ishiguro returns with his first novel since being awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Told through the eyes of an android, Klara and the Sun takes readers to a vaguely futuristic setting where the rich enjoy every privilege and children must interact with artificial friends. Lauded as a dazzling and genre-bending work, it bears the hallmark tenderness and restraint of Kazuo’s earlier novels Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day.

Kazuo – appearing live via video from the UK – is joined by on-stage interviewer, Culture Deputy Editor at The Sydney Morning Herald Melanie Kembrey at City Recital Hall to discuss his haunting new parable and his influential body of work.

This event is Auslan interpreted.
