Our Bookseller says:

“In the dystopian society of Ishiguro’s imagination, organ harvesting is not only accepted but central- this fact is the least interesting thing about this book. The children at the Hailsham school are privileged, growing up among art and culture administered under careful control. Friends Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy explore the dark irregularities of their world, pushing against the boundaries of their limited world. The questions that tore at them in childhood follow them to adulthood, only to find their early obsessions were never the ones that matter. We are used to seeing dystopia from the outside, from the perspective of the rebels, the ‘others’ that want to change it. This is dystopia from the inside. Above all, Ishiguro is a master of the relationships, nostalgia, and regret that consume us against the background of a crumbling society.” – Niya
