Japanese-Born British Writer Kazuo Ishiguro Wins Nobel Prize In Literature
British writer Kazuo Ishiguro is awarded Nobel Prize in Literature. Born in 1954 in Nagasaki, Japan, he wanted to be a singer and songwriter as a young man, but never succeeded in the music business.
Ishiguro is best known for his novels “Never Let Me Go” and “The Remains of the Day.”
Talking to the press on Thursday in London the 62-year-old said he was shocked to know that he will be awarded Nobel Prize for Literature.
Ishiguro added, “If I had even a suspicion, I would have washed my hair this morning… all the great writers living at this time who haven’t won this prize, I feel slightly like an impostor.”
The writer moved to Surrey in England at the age of five and attended Woking County Grammar School. At the age of 9 or 10 he got inspired reading the stories of Sherlock Holmes in local library and discovered literature.
He studied English and philosophy at the University of Kent, in Canterbury. He gained a Master of Arts in creative writing after spending a year writing fiction. He studied with great writers like Angela Carter and Malcolm Bradbury.
Ishiguro was included in Granta magazine’s best of young British writers list in 1983. He joined great writers like Salman Rushdie, Ian McEwan and Martin Amis.
His first novel was titled “A Pale View of Hills” and was published in 1982. It was the story about a middle-aged Japanese woman who lived in England.
His second novel was “An Artist of the Floating World.”http://www.dailynewsz.com/japanese-born-british-writer-kazuo-ishiguro-wins-nobel-prize-in-literature/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Japanese-Born-British-Writer-Kazuo-Ishiguro-Wins-Nobel-Prize-In-Literature.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Japanese-Born-British-Writer-Kazuo-Ishiguro-Wins-Nobel-Prize-In-Literature-300x300.jpgEducationbritish writer,Kazuo Ishiguro,nobel prize,Nobel Prize In Literature
