A Family Supper

by Ishiguro, Kazuo

A longish truancy calls for a longish return, so this one clocks in accordingly on the longish side. Given his penchant for regular oxygen-free plunges into plots and thoughts of strained family relations, self-imposed exile, cultural alienation and melancholia, it’s also counterintuitively uplifting. Enjoy.
