New Lebanon Book Group: "Klara and the Sun" by Kazuo Ishiguro
July 11, 2021 –
This event will be held at the Shatford Park picnic pavilion unless you hear otherwise. Copies of the book are available by request at local libraries. Curious readers, visitors, and drop-ins are always welcome!
This is Ishiguro’s eighth novel, and Klara, who narrates it, is an Artificial Friend, a humanoid machine — short dark hair; kind eyes; distinguished by her powers of observation — who has come to act as companion for 14-year-old Josie. Like that childhood stalwart Corduroy, she’d been sitting in a store, hoping to be chosen by the right child. --- Radhika Jones, New York Times
