A New York Times Notable Book
"A fine and moving collection of stories, displaying [Ishiguro's] unique combination of the sad, the stoic and the consoling. It's about failure, but it dignifies failure, and with it, the human condition. There is nobody like him."
— Margaret Drabble, The Guardian Books of the Year
"Each of these stories is heartbreaking in its own way, but some have moments of great comedy, and they all require a level of attention that, typically, Ishiguro's writing rewards."— The Observer
"An amusing read, at times very funny.... There are a number of scenes in Nocturnes
that are almost worth the price of admission on their own." — The Globe and Mail
