An innovative study examining the work of memory in Kazuo Ishiguro's novels. Drawing from Paul Ricoeur's writing on memory, and a number of theorists on mourning, trauma and collective memory, this study introduces a unique conceptual framework that investigates the distinctive and cathartic work of memory that is inherent in Ishiguro's novels.
