Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro

This is a book about what it means to be human. How we learn as we grow (but don’t have the vocabulary to understand or express the process). How we learn what our emotions are. How we interpret the motivations of those around us, including those that could be deliberately self-serving. What it means to have a purpose, and to follow that purpose. And at the end, how to accept our finitude with grace.

All told in painfully sparse prose.

What a wonderful start to this year!
