Nobel Prize in Literature goes to British author Kazuo Ishiguro this time
A release by the Swedish Academy has announced, "The 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature is awarded to the English author Kazuo Ishiguro who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world."

Kazuo Ishiguro, 62, born in Nagasaki in Japan, is a novelist, screenwriter and short story writer – all rolled into one. His family moved to England in 1960 when he was five years of age.

Prior to Nobel Prize in Literature, the other awards won by Ishiguro are the Booker Prize, Order of the British Empire, Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Nobel Prize in Literature and Costa Book of the Year.

He has written several books, as well as film and TV scripts and one of his novels 'The Remains of the Day' was turned into a film with Anthony Hopkins as the butler Stevens.

Most of his novels have been written in the first-person narrative style with human failings and flaws.  He aptly creates a sense of pathos along with generating sympathies with the narrator for his or her inaction and actions both.
