Summary
"A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro's beautiful and haunting evocation of Life between the wars in a Great English House." -- Back cover
Summary
Stevens, an aging butler dedicated to the dignity of his profession, takes to the road to convince Ms. Bent -- a now-married former housekeeper -- to resume her duties at Darlington Hall. As Stevens journeys, he reflects on their prior acquaintance; his memories reveal Stevens’ deeply personal desires, and how he has rewritten events to maintain his ideal image of service and discretion. -- Description by Kimberly S. Burton
