Booker Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro introduces his much-anticipated first new novel in a decade, The Buried Giant, in a special preview event for this year’s FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival.

The Buried Giant opens with a couple setting off across a troubled land of mist and rain in search of a son they have not seen in years. It is a novel about lost memories, love, revenge and war. It is published in the week leading up to this preview event.

Ishiguro has been nominated for the Booker prize four times, winning it once for Remains of the Day, and has won many other domestic and international literary prizes. Both Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go have sold more than 1,000,000 copies and been turned into highly acclaimed films. Altogether, he has written six previous novels and his work has been translated into more than 40 languages. He holds an OBE for services to literature and was awarded Chevalier de L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by France.

Here he talks to Financial Times books editor Lorien Kite.
