We are overjoyed and very proud throughout Penguin Random House that the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature has been bestowed upon our author Kazuo Ishiguro.
His beloved fiction, which includes THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, NEVER LET ME GO, and THE BURIED GIANT, has been published in the U.S. by Knopf, Vintage, and Random House Audio since 1989.
The Swedish Academy today expressed their admiration of Mr. Ishiguro as a writer “who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world.”
Sonny Mehta, Mr. Ishiguro’s editor and publisher at Knopf, said, “I’ve always thought that Ish is an amazing writer. The breadth of his work as a novelist is astonishing. We’ve had the good fortune of being his publisher since THE REMAINS OF THE DAY, a book that readers around the world have come to cherish. This acknowledgment from the Swedish academy is the most wonderful news, and a very happy occasion for all of us at Knopf and Vintage, and indeed, everyone at Penguin Random House worldwide.”
Mr. Ishiguro is the newest among more than 60 of our authors who are recipients of a Nobel Prize, one of Penguin Random House’s signature benchmarks.
