Scene and Heard: Kazuo Ishiguro

Kazuo Ishiguro is a Big Deal, both capitals intended. Following his breakthrough 1989 novel “The Remains of the Day,” he’s kept it up over a career of over two decades with a string of bestsellers. You might remember his last, the heartwrenching “Never Let Me Go,” from its movie adaptation starring the equally heartwrenching Andrew Garfield. His new novel, “The Buried Giant,” is big even by Ishiguro’s standards: It’s his first in 10 years, and expectations are higher than Memorial Church’s steeple.

'World Gone By' a Letdown in Plotting, but Great Character Portrait

While Lehane’s work is balanced by some truly beautiful descriptions of character that lie beneath what seems like a mere beach read, it ultimately rests on a series of cheap thrills, twists, and gunfire.

'The Dream of My Return' a Nuanced Dream
