By the Book: Book Club April 2021 - Klara and the Sun

Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro's first book after winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, sees him returning to some familiar themes: technology, artificial intelligence, what it means to be human, what it means to serve your purpose, and ultimately... how we relate to one another. We discuss this book with first-time Ishiguro reader, Marc De Faoite, and then in Footnotes, discuss gateway books - the books that introduce us to a writer's body of work and why they matter.
