Never Let Me Go
Woodbourne Library
Community Room

Join us for a discussion of Never Let Me Go (2005-Science Fiction) by Kazuo Ishiguro. From Publisher's Weekly: Like Ishiguro's previous works (The Remains of the Day; When We Were Orphans) his sixth novel is so exquisitely observed that even the most workaday objects and interactions are infused with a luminous, humming otherworldliness. The dystopian story it tells, meanwhile, gives it a different kind of electric charge. Set in late 1990s England, in a parallel universe in which humans are cloned and raised expressly to "donate" their healthy organs and thus eradicate disease from the normal population, this is an epic ethical horror story, told in devastatingly poignant miniature. 

288 pages, 3.81/5 stars (out of 393,631 ratings on Goodreads). Copies of the book will be distributed to attendees at the May discussion, and limited copies will be available at the Woodbourne Front Desk after the discussion. Those needing special accommodations should contact the Library in advance at 435-3700.
