Novelist Kazuo Ishiguro wins Nobel Prize in Literature

(VOVWORLD) - The 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded on Thursday to British writer Kazuo Ishiguro, whose best-known novels include "The Remains of the Day" and "Never Let Me Go."

Ishiguro was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954 and moved to England when he was five. The novelist was praised by the Swedish Academy as a writer who, in novels of great emotional force, has uncovered the abyss beneath the illusory sense of connection with the world.  The Nobel Peace Prize is expected to be announced on Friday and the prize for economics next Monday.
