Our hosts for this month are Adrienne McClelland and Nancy Carlyle.
Our book is "Klara and the Sun: A Novel," by Kazuo Ishiguro.
This is the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend for young people with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.
This is a look at the world (set in the near future) through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love? Ishiguro is a Nobel laureate and author of “The Remains of the Day,” among other bestsellers.
