In 1956, Stevens, a long-serving butler at Darlington Hall, decides to take a motoring trip through the West Country. The six-day excursion becomes a journey into the past of Stevens and England, a past that takes in fascism, two world wars and an unrealised love between the butler and his housekeeper. Ishiguro`s dazzling novel is a sad and humorous love story, a meditation of the condition of modern man, and an elegy for England at a time of acute change. Winner of the Booker Prize in 1989, The Remains of the Day was subsequently made into a successful film.
