Klara will stay with us forever review

Anyone reading Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Me Deixes novel, published more than a decade ago in 2005 by Gradiva, the Portuguese publisher of the Japanese-born British writer, may not remember the story or its characters well. But he will never forget the effect he felt while reading: not only because of the environment that the author, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature years later, in 2017, recreates himself in this dystopian science fiction novel dealt with cloning; but also for the brilliant way it guides readers through the narrative and takes time to reveal what is really going on there. We have the same feeling when we read this Clare and the Sun, the first novel he published after the Nobel Prize and which is somewhere in the United States of America. That is why there are pictures and landscapes in Clare and the Sun like those of some American painters with huge fields and sky on the horizon, but also pictures like those of Edward Hopper’s buildings and artificial light (1882-1967).
