Klara and the Sun’, tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities. Klara eventually goes home with a sweet but sick girl named Josie and her mother. While the reader learns about the context of the society in the novel, a semi-dystopian world in the not too distant future, Klara finds herself discovering truths about people, difficult decisions they must make, and the complexities of love.
The novel was published on March 2021 and it’s the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.[/section] [section title=»About the author» tip=»Open for more information about the author»]
