Kazuo Ishiguro has finally won. He’s been deserving this prize for a long time. The Remains of the Day is one of the greatest English novels ever written. Never Let Me Go was amazing. A Pale View of Hills was good too. I’m going to check out some of his other books.

If you want to read something interesting about Ishiguro, check out how he wrote The Remains of the Day in four weeks. I’m really happy he decided to have the butler open up at the end.

Also, more funny news: fans were gathered in Tokyo, expecting to celebrate Haruki Murakami’s win. But when Murakami lost, they were happy to celebrate a Japanese nikkei‘s win. Unfortunately, not many people in Japan know who Kazuo Ishiguro is!
