Beejay Silcox on our ontological poet
The ABR Podcast 02 March 2021

In 2017, Kazuo Ishiguro won the Nobel Prize for Literature for his masterful novels, which, in the judges’ words, uncover 'the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world'. His new work, Klara and the Sun, is his first novel since winning the Nobel Prize. In today's episode, Beejay Silcox discusses the novel and our expectations of the author, and reads in full her review which appears in ABR's March issue.

The ABR Podcast features a range of literary highlights, such as reviews, poetry, fiction, interviews, and commentary.
