My Interview with Nobel Prize Winner Kazuo Ishiguro

Novelist Kazuo Ishiguro just won the Nobel Prize for Literature and back in 2015 he stopped by the Wall Street Journal to talk to me for a video interview. Our discussion was a wide-ranging one, covering his new fantasy-influenced book “The Buried Giant” as well as his classic novel “The Remains of the Day.” You can watch clips from the interview below.
