Faber & Faber has announced that Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade, called The Buried Giant, will be published next year.
The book’s release is slated for March 2015, a full 10 years after Ishiguro released Never Let Me Go, his critically acclaimed 2005 novel about a doomed love triangle. In 2010, a film adaptation starring Carrie Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley was released.
Ishiguro won the Booker Prize in 1989 for his third novel, The Remains of the Day, about the professional life and love of an English butler. The 1993 film adaptation starred Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson and was nominated for eight Academy Awards.
The Buried Giant will be Ishiguro’s seventh novel and while few details have been released, The Bookseller describes it as a story about “lost memories, love, revenge and war.” Stephen Page, Faber’s chief executive, called the new novel “a truly sublime new chapter in one of the most significant bodies of work of anyone writing today.”
