Summary
A musician of international renown checks into a hotel in eastern Europe. He has the distinct recollection that he is due to perform in the Civic Concert Hall in a few days' time, but as the hotel porter escorts him to his room it occurs to him that there is much more to his visit than he expected
Summary
Ryder, a renowned pianist, arrives in a Central European city he cannot identify for a concert he cannot remember agreeing to give. But then as he traverses a landscape by turns eerie and comical -- and always strangely malleable, as a dream might be -- he comes steadily to realise he is facing the most crucial performance of his life. Ishiguro's extraordinary study of a man whose life has accelerated beyond his control was met on publication by consternation, vilification -- and the highest praise.
