Remains of the Day

Out of Stock. Delivery time unknown.


Text in Arabic. In the summer of 1956, Stevens, a long-serving butler at Darlington Hall, decides to take a motoring trip through the West Country of England. The six-day excursion becomes a journey into the Stevens past; a past that examines fascism, two world wars, and delves into the complexities of the unrealized love between a butler and a housekeeper. In this fascinating work, devoted to one of the pillars of modern English prose, Kazuo Ishiguro seeks to give an insiders view on British society through the voice of the narrator, Stevens, who understands the complexities of what goes on the behind closed doors of the elite through his service as a butler in one of the oldest aristocratic and political houses in England.
