Kazuo Ishiguro, Faber and Faber, ISBN 0 57 120516 X, £6.99 This novel traces the progress of an English boy (Christopher) who started life in Shanghai in an apparently reasonably prosperous middle‐class environment in the years between the two World Wars. Following an episode which is carefully not explained at the time, his father disappears and an ‘uncle’ accompanies him to London. A conventional schooling followed by Cambridge University results in his training as a detective. In fact, he develops into a notably successful and sought after detective. Ishiguro uses this scenario to weave an intriguing story, the final denouement only being revealed at the very end. The writing style is characterised by historic flashbacks, almost as if he is preparing for a film version (as ‘Remains of The Day’). This demands concentration by the reader. In general the story is believable, especially as life in Shanghai in those years was bustling with all kinds of business and criminal activity. However, credibility is stretched to the limit by the episode of our hero meeting his boyhood Japanese friend in a Shanghai slum during fierce hand‐to‐hand fighting involving the Chinese following his return to that city as a young adult. The romantic side of the tale is provided by the hesitant relationship between Christopher and an ambitious, attractive girl who marries into society a man much older than herself. Of course she and her debt‐ridden, gambling husband appear in Shanghai as well. This book was short‐listed for the Booker Prize. It has nearly all the ingredients of an exciting novel; history, crime, romance, war and poignancy. If it was not written as a novel, it might even be true. I wonder when it will be made in to a film – but do read the book first.
