Dear Mr. Ishiguro,

I am writing to express my appreciation for The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go. These novels are
beautiful and captivating. In both works, I was struck by the ease with which
you expressed the complexity and depth of the characters – you did it
masterfully. I was surprised at how fully I understood and related to your
characters, despite the vast differences between us. Your ability to bridge the
gap between people in this way makes your writing very powerful. I’ve just
purchased When We Were Orphans, and I’m
looking forward to reading more of your writing. Thank you so much!

Best wishes,

Libby Nousen
