Text in Arabic. This is a 2009 collection of short fiction by Kazuo Ishiguro.
After six novels, it is Ishiguro's first collection of short stories.
As the subtitle suggests, each of the five stories focuses on music and musicians, and the close of day.
They are stories that revolve around the relationship between music and human relationships, about hopeless romantic relationships that have reached their end, and the feelings of remorse and disappointment in life.
Ishiguro uses music as a backdrop to the novel of these complex relationships of love and desire among humans.
The famous international novelist cleverly puts his signature mark on each story as he famously does with his novels, with dialogues revealing the true nature of the characters, their quirks and habits, and their unattained aspirations and dreams.
