The 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature has been awarded to British novelist Kazuo Ishiguro.
Born in Japan in 1954, the author’s family moved to England when he was five years old.
Kazuo Ishiguro, best known for works including Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day, wins prestigious prize.
The writer, “in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world”, said the Nobel Prize committee in a statement on Thursday.
Ishiguro studied at the University of Kent, receiving an undergraduate degree in English and Philosophy and later received a Master’s degree from the University of East Anglia in Creative Writing.
His latest book, The Buried Giant, was published in 2015.
