Saturday, May 11 @ 10:30am The maze of human memory is territory that Kazuo Ishiguro has made his own. In When We Were Orphans, his first novel in five years, he returns to this terrain. Christopher Banks, an English boy born in early-twentieth-century Shanghai, is orphaned at age nine when his mother and father both vanish. Sent to live in England, he grows up to become a renowned detective and, returns to Shanghai, where the Sino-Japanese War is raging, to solve the mystery of the disappearances. The story is straightforward. Its telling is remarkable.
